Can anyone please advise? Is this pink-flowered plant a weed? I have one growing in one of my pots but also found another between the paving in front of my house 🤔 Thank you!

Looks like dead nettle, I would compare it when the flowers open. Great for bumblebees if it is.

Does look like dead nettle if it is the bees will love it. Post another pic when the flower opens 😊

Ah amazing- thank you ladies @anne8691 @angiecrazycatlady @jaynehynesburton When I first read 'dead nettle' I thought 'oh cripes, don't want that' but if it's good for the bees, isn't a weed and produces nice pink flowers then I'm in! Will repost another pic when the flowers open like you suggest Angie. Hope you're all having a magnificent bank holiday Monday! 👍🏼
