What Is This Flower?

So this seems to have shown up last year and hasn't flowered until this year and I'm wondering what it could be.

It looks to me like Dame's Rocket, Hesperis matronalis.

It's a wildflower... not a weed. :lol:

It's quite pretty whatever it is but I'm partial to anything purple. :roll:

You can buy seeds for it. I planted some in my flower beds. It does spread rather profusely, however. I do pull up a lot of it in other parts of my yard. Somewhat like forget-me-nots! :lol:
