Can anyone name this plant for me please.  I posted it here a couple of months ago, but was unable to name it, however now it is in flower and with plenty of buds it may be easier to identify. It is growing in my wild flower area, is it WILD?  Thank you.

    Looks like Hesperis matronalis
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I agree ...  Hesperis matronalis Alba ... gorgeous  scent on warm evenings.

    Thank you Dove and Punkdoc, I have now googled the name, also known as Sweet Rocket - yes the flowers are very similar to Honesty and I am pleased that it may self seed in our wild flower patch. Thank you.
