WHAT is this plantor weed?? Can anyone help?

Right I have gone over the bits today that I do not want with a Dutch hoe - but lots of roots left- so be interesting to see if they come up again. Wide and plentiful root system underneath the plants.

Thanks for all the advice and help everyone. I have asked everyone I know and nobody knew what it was.

Our garden is all in gravel with bushes and it has infiltrated the gravel like a carpet and the flowers come and go so quickly that it is like a green carpet all the year round. Are you sure it is not a weed? It certainly grows like a weed - but I have just Googled the dog violet and it certainly seems the same one- just like you have all said. Do you think I should let it spread where it wants or get rid of it? It is very dominant and the roots spread a very long way under the gravel.

Hi, can someone PLEASE tell me what this ground cover plant is and how to get rid of it? I was given a small plant of it by a friend a few years ago and in spring it comes with a wee blue/purplish flower which does not last long. It has invaded my garden and I cannot get rid of it even after spraying with round up. I did this last year after summer and it turned brown but came up again in spring. Photo attached. Very grateful if you could help and advise please.
