Purple Archangel (Lamium purpureum)

Photographed February 23.

One of the first spring wildflowers, Purple Archangel or Purple Dead-Nettle can take advantage of a warm period in the middle of the winter to bloom for a few days. It is a very attractive flower on a small scale; as weeds go, this one is hard to object to very much.

See the full description on the Lamium purpureum page at the reference site.
