I wonder if anyone could help. This plant appearedin my garden and I have watche dit grow but have no idea what it is, does anyone know?

I thought it was a weed, but it is quite pretty.

Thanks for looking.

Pennywort or Umbilica Rubestrus.  I only know because I found a bit in my Mum's garden growing through an old wooden crate and looked it up.  I would classify it as a wild flower rather than a weed - I think it depends on your point of view ...

Umbilicus rupestris is very pretty in my opinion.
