I thought they were geranium leaves

Drc many folk confuse geraniums and pelargoniums both are members of the Geraniaceae family. Geraniums, cranesbills, are hardy; pelargoniums, storksbills, are the ones grown as annuals for bedding, hanging baskets and the like. They can be overwintered but not outside (unless you live somewhere frost free).

That's a kind of "bedding geranium" as it's loosely called in the trade - that you get in a garden centre for summer etc. Pot it up and take it inside - keep it on the dry side and it may well reward you again next year. Many people regard them as annuals and don't bother. You may not remember getting it - as it could have been a tiny wee slip of a cutting in with another plant....easily done!
