I just tried to link a photo but can't make it small enough...

It's not time, has silvery green foliage that is kind of velvety in texture, small but not tiny leaves, spreads, little pink flowers, the name is on the tip of my tongue...

I am finding Lamium to be the gift that keeps on giving...meaning it is not remembering very well where it is supposed to be in the garden...it SPREADS at an alarming rate..good thing it is easy to pull. I love the shell pink flowers on one of mine and if I cut it back a bit after the first bloom..it blooms again for me...that is why I forgive its rather piggy behavior.
