    That's been popping up all over my garden this year. I wondered what It was. I decided that as it was so vigorous and prolific,it must be a weed so I pulled it will out. Looks like I was right.😏
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Not sure you were right to pull it out. It's rather pretty and a plant is only a weed if you don't like it - surely!

    If it is growing in the wrong place then it is a weed. I prefer to look at it mostly as a wildflower as I have seen the bumble bees appreciate the flowers and although small they bloom for a long time. I tend to only pull it out when the plants I like near to it are suffering from the competition.
