Prunella vulgaris aka Self Heal. Pretty weed but an absolute thug in the wrong place.

Yes its Prunella vulgaris. often found in grass and unless the mower blades are really low you'll hardly cut the flowers off. The bees love them.

A beautiful wildflower which as Seaburn says is loved by bees. You can purchase the pink variety of this in some garden centres. Leave is possible.

Honeysuckle, I didn't know there was a pink variety. I'll have a look for it online. It's a lovely wildflower.

There are pink and white versions that are sold as rockery plants. I had a white one many years ago.
