What is this growing on my old walls?

We have this plant which grows in the old mortar of the old high walls around parts of our site. It is giving a lovely colour this year (light pink flowers) - I think the wet weather is helping it a lot!

The pictures don't really reflect how pretty it is as they were taken on a dull day. Please let me know if you know the name of the plant. You can click on any of the images to zoom in.

  1. I have just been informed that it probably Geranium robertianum. Common name herb Robert.
    A weed to most folk.


    It probably is a weed but I don't mind it on the old walls - I have removed it from the flower beds though. As the walls are over 8ft high it breaks up the grey of them nicely!
