This weed is everywhere! Sorry the pictures are so bad I only thought to take one after I'd pulled them. It's tall, has kind of fluffy bits and pinky purple flowers - and it's fecking driving me insane...

I think it's willowherb.....?? If so it's not the worst, in that it's easy to pull up.....just try to get it before it flowers and sets seed !
