That's alright LE, I need to be kept out of trouble, anyway! :)
It looks like an Oxalis, probably one of the Grand Duchess group. They go to sleep in late summer,anyway.

Thank You for the ID, I have looked it up & found it is edible, you can put the leaves & stalks in to a trout & cook it, there are other ways of using it with food too, amazing what one can find out on the internet:o)) x
I was also wondering seeng I’ve cut it back will I get a second flush of Flowers?

I've been growing this for years, ever since a friend gave me a piece, and is now has a sentimental value and comes with me on every house move. As long as it has plenty of sunshine it will flower all summer. I leave it to do it's own thing and don't fuss it at all. Easy to propagate, just dig a small piece up and replant, taking care to keep it watered until it's taken which won't be long.
