I'm not sure if this is something lovely or should be pulled as a weed.  Can anyone ID for me please  :)

    I have a nasty habit of buying seed packets, flinging the seeds around the borders and then not taking a note of what they are or when/where I did it  :D

    Which one? there are 2 plants on the pic.
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    I think the small one to the left is petty spurge, I'm keen to know the larger one on the right.

    I thought the one on the left might be a scarlet pimpernel
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Possibly one of the deadnettles (Lamium) - it'll be easier to tell when it flowers. 
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained

    They look a bit like Ground Ivy, Glechoma Hederacea.

    Thank you for the pointers folks, JennyJ looks right and I think it is dead nettle, I absolutely love lamium maculatum silver beacon, shame the common version isn't so flashy!  They'll be evicted this weekend.....
