Hi I found this plant in my garden and I have not planted it ( I have had the garden for 30 years), it looks like a Geranium but it has got shiny leaves and does not look like any other Geranium in the garden. Hope someone can identify it for me. Thanks Ken

Looks like Geranium nodosum.

Definitely - you are lucky! It's a pretty one. :-)

Actually while the leaves are Nodosum, the flower is more pink than purple. Perhaps it is a cross twixt G. nodosum and G. endressii?

Could be the camera - I have one that comes out looking like this! Really, it's more lilac.

Not an easy colour to capture on a digital camera is it?

No - like most of the purples and magentas!
