    A type of Scilla perhaps, but l'm not sure.

    I agree with AnniD, a squill.

    It looks like chionodoxa to me, 'Glory of the Snow'. Possibly chionodoxa luciliae?

    I agree that it's more like Chionodoxa, but the photo isn't clear at all. What height is it?
    They're small compared to the scillas.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    You spend years learning the names and what they look like!!!!
    I used to call this Chionodoxa ...however I now believe it has had a name change to Scilla.

    It has indeed changed from Chionodoxa to Scilla. Blame DNA testing.

    Yes, these name changes are irritating. You have a choice of ignoring them or switch to the new name ASAP and try to commit it to memory.  ;)
    Right now I have a lovely blue carpet of Chionodoxa Scilla forbesii in my garden!
