    Not sure but it could be Ladies Smock.Cardamine pratensis.

    That was my thought too.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    I agree.  It is also known as cuckooflower.  I saw some when I was out walking and looked it up when I got home.  I am so much more observant now since I joined this siteimage

    I've just saved a little bit which has seeded into the garden and transplanted it. Great for bees too image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
