Flock or Phlox?

Next to my raspberries a tallish purple flower stands. I think it’s a phlox? I’m not sure of the spelling. Homonyms, words that sound the same but are spelt /spelled differently.

The English language can trip you up. It has evolved, with different spelling rules like ‘i before e except after c’, which isn’t always correct.

Anyway, back to this plant. I was really pleased I managed to get a reasonably close image of the flowers. With water droplets visible on the petals. Any ideas on identification?
