Definitely a hardy geranium. I have several and it could be malviflorum or similar. After flowering, cut off everything to about 6" and feed with BFB - it should re-flower later on in the season. Divide clump by cutting into chunks, or use a hand fork or trowel to take off outside shoots which you then can pot up. It will tolerate both full sun and part shade.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

Its a cranesbill I think. The wild version. Lovely plants, bees adore them.
