Don't kill them!!! It's cyclamen hederifolium!!!
We've got the white version - love them to bits!!!
If they're in the wrong place it's easy to dig them up in the spring and move them somewhere they can naturalise. They grow from corms which become huge, the size of dinner plates.
The pink flower is the cyclamen - they come through before the leaves, and the coiled stems like springs have the seedcases at the tips.
Lovely big snail in the middle there too
