Help me identify this plant please, it's about 3ft high and probably a weed but I like it!

@pottybird42 apparently a weed is just a plant in the wrong place 😂😂looks quite at home in my border and even the right colour 👍🏻

Oh well, pretty either way. I am growing a rather large something in one of my planters at the moment...has pink buds so it can't be all bad! 😂
