Wildflower ID please

Does anyone know what this is please? It's growing in the woodland near me but there was also lots of it in Grasmere the other week.

Sorry it's sideways, I took it on my iPhone and they always come out sideways image

    Wild garlic.

    When you click on the image to enlarge it, it always turns the right way around - a feature I really like image

    Ramsons, Allium ursinium. Very invasive in gardens, lovely in the wild.

    You can buy it in the supermarket here in Denmark, in pots along with parsley, coriander and the other usual herbs in the fruit and veg section. image

    Ooh lovely, I was thinking of trying to get some but not sure if it's invasive, I could put it in a pot though. It's very pretty.

    I'll take your word for it on the smell seen as the woodlands are a popular dog walking area image

    Thanks everyone image

    Just do take care, invasive is not a strong enough word - on Guernsey it is everywhere to a really damaging degree.
