plant id please
i there. I've noticed a lovely plant growing in my front garden with purple flowers. I was wandering if anybody could identify it.

That’s a wild cranesbill ... a type of native hardy geranium ... often known as Herb Robert. The foliage is very pungent and some folk dislike the smell; I like it and allow it to grow in the wilder area of the garden.
However it can be quite invasive so I try not to let it seed.
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
o many thanks for that
