Maybe

It maybe Cut leaved Crane's-bill (Geranium dissectum,as it has the pink-red tinge to it,but as Chalkie has said we need leaves to be sure.

This looks like a garden

This looks like a garden plant of some sort to me. I grow several Crane's- bill sp. to encourage the local bumble-bees, and this doesn't
look right for a Geranium.

but...

maybe they're flower buds, rather than seed heads? I think it's most likely Geranium dissectum, cut-leaved crane's-bill too, but without leaves not at all sure. How big was the flower? I'm imagining it to be under 1cm? G dissectum does have long points on the tips of the sepals which are often reddened.

Yes, they could be flower

Yes, they could be flower buds, I've edited that bit out of my previous comment. I'm still doubtful as to whether it's a Crane's-bill , it's a
pity we haven't any leaf pictures.

try wikipedia!

The geranium dissectum photo on wikipedia (admittedly perhaps not the most reliable source) does look remarkably similar to the photo here - especially the sepals

My apologies Chalkie, on

My apologies Chalkie, on reflection, it probably is a cranesbill. Apologies also to Sheila who reckoned it was a Cut leaved Cranes-bill,
I think you were pretty much on the mark there.

Tony.

No need

There is no need to apologise it's good to question things that's how we learn.

No worries

I've been much further out than that before!
