Could someone please identify this for me please? It appeared in the garden a few years ago and seeds quite freely if the others that pop up are anything to go by. Thank you.

    Yes, an Aquilegia ... possibly Aquilegia alpina which I have and which is flowering in my garden at the moment, earlier than most other types.

    It's not too early for the regular Aquilegia vulgaris. Mine have been in flower for a week or so now, and I'd expect them to be earlier in Devon unless it's high up.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
