Spotted this in the back yard, which I've never seen before. They appear to be a weed. They were tiny flowers flourishing behind the garage, but were short-lived. Have you ever seen these before or know their name?

Thank you to Grouser who identified them.

My first thought was periwinkles, Steven, but I'm not really good at naming most flowers. Regardless, how delightful!

There were many Geraniums near where I lived growing up. I seem to recall red ones the most.
