Identification please

I’ve found 2 plants that I need an ID, firstly I have lots of what look like tufts of grass but when I dug them up I found hundreds of tiny pearly bulbs... I guessed some sort of allium?

secondly, and I have photos for this one! What might this be? It’s everywhere!

    looks to me like one of the willow herb varieties which most would consider weeds
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    No idea what it's called but it's a weed. If it's everywhere it's always unlikely to be a flower.
    As to the bulbs could be grape hyacinths.

    They are Willowherb, I dig them out before they flower, they throw out thousands of seeds, as a fuchsia grower I daren’t allow it anyway.

    Your bulbs sound like chives. I did the same thing with mine, forgetting I'd planted them there!

    Thanks so much as always :)

    I don't believe they were chives or grape hyacinths but after a bit of research they sound like a weed called onion grass if there is such a thing?!
