Can anyone help identify the attached weed which is making huge inroads to my small garden, please?

    Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum.)
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Think you will find it is Herb Robert. (Common name) I forgot the latin one. Something robertianum.
    Does it have little mid pinky purple flowers, quite small?
    The plant itself is not hard to pull up, they do not root deeply. Do as many as you can and try not to let them seed.
    They "ping" everywhere.

    I like their smell.

    Thank you, wise people. I'm relieved it's not a weed! I'll simply keep it in check. Cheers!!

    Some/most people regard it as a weed ... I let it grow in the wilder parts of the garden.

    I pull it out, I think it stinks.
