Snow Drop Or Not?

Hello,

Hoping someone can identify this plant.

An unseasonnal request as the photograph was taken in late May, bear in mind this spring was late starting this year, may or may not help!

 I wouldn't call it a double snow drop but rather a single stemed plant bearing two seperate flowers each resembling a typical snow drop flower head.

Tried googling this several times using various ways of describing it and i've failed to find out what it is or anything about it.

Hope somebody here can help.

Mark

    Leucojum vernum?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • It looks like a fairy's skirt (not that I've ever seen a fairy).

    It looks like leucojum aestivum which appeared in my garden from no where.  Oops Dove I think that is just what you said too.

  • Excellent Result, thank you.

    Sorted

    Never heard of Snow Flakes or Fairy's Skirts before.

    Have seen several Fairy's though after a bottle, or two if i'm honest bottles of Red!!!!!!!!!!!!! image

     

    Thank you
