Hi guys, Still can't identify this little plant so hope one of you might know! Each fully opened flower is 3cm across and 2cm high. Largest leaf is 6cm long and the 5 leaves are all joined at the centre to the stem. The plant is roughly 60-70cm high. It's growing in Cambridgeshire in quite an overgrown garden that's not been tended for over a year and there is no sign of self seeding around the main plant. I initially thought Bergamot but none of the photos I looked at were not similar

A FEMALE moment??!! blimey, I'm shocked by that - a 'blond' moment, a CRAFT moment, a senior moment, but never, never a female moment...
