Can any one tell me what this is? Spanish bluebell?

Hi I’ve just dug a fair few clumps of this up from the border... worried it might be Spanish bluebells... really not sure. Don’t remember planting whatever it is! Quite large bulbs

    Yes they are.
    How can you lie there and think of England

    Afraid so. Well done for getting the bulbs out, they can be right bu**ers to remove >:) .

    If they are large bulbs they could be Camassias. I've enclosed pictures below of my Camassia for you to compare. These are lovely plants so I hope you save yours in a pot just to be sure.

    I think Spanish bluebells, too. Mine are in bud at the same stage as yours. Very early.
