Help identifying this weed/plant

Hi all

I have noticed this in my garden, I think it is a weed.
Would anyone be able to identify it?

Thanks in advance.

    The pinky mauve flowers are Red Dead Nettle ... usually regarded as a weed, but bumble bees love it so it’s good for a Wild Patch. https://www.plantlife.org.uk/uk/discover-wild-plants-nature/plant-fungi-species/red-dead-nettle

    Dont worry about asking ... we all started once and some are further along the road than others. 😊
