Can anyone identify this plant for me.  It appeared in my garden about 2 years ago.  I suspect it is a weed, but it is quite pretty and the bees like it.

Thanks so much, PALustris!

Think I will let this flourish in my garden now that I know its name.

Good job you like it Monika, it's very deep rooted and difficult to get rid of!

did not think it was flat growing enough for P. reptans and not the right colour of leaves for P. anserinifolia. Whatever just don't let it seed or you will have gillions of them.
