    Camassia.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    The flowers look more like Pushkinia scilloides to me @BobTheGardener

    Mmm. All the Puschkinnia I have grown all have a blue central vein on the flower.
    One of the Ornithogalum perhaps? Check out O. nutans.

    No problem @BobTheGardener. Done it mtself! Also I've often written a post in answer to a question only to discover someone else has beaten me to it whilst I was typing! Its easily done and you just have to laugh.
    By the way, welcome to the forum @steve3504hall! Those are lovely plants you have there.

    Agree with Palustris, looks more like Star of Bethlehem, Ornithogalum  nutans.
    Very pretty, whatever it might be!

    Me too, Star of Bethlehem.
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    I'm sure it's an ornithogalum, but couldn't say which.
