Sure looks like a wild Geranium. It could be really pretty.

I agree A type of wild geranium. I let them grow and do not pull them as weeds.

Very pretty, it looks a lot like the Carolina Cranesbill (Geranium carolinianum) that grows here.

I googled and I see that Wild Geranium (Geranium maculatum) grows in Maryland

This site says it blooms from April - June: http://extension.umd.edu/sites...

I did buy a couple varieties of cranesbill geraniums last year! Most didn't do anything at all--not even showing up--and I wondered if I'd see them again. Yay!

Thanks, all!
