Little White Flowers


I was just weeding my herb garden and these little white flowers were everywhere. I thought they were weeds, so I started to pull them. I soon discovered that they were attached to bulbs. Oops!

Does anyone have any idea what they are? They are tiny and fragrant. (I didn't plant anything there ...)

No idea, but they sure are sweet!

We have them all over our yard too (KS). They're called "star of bethlehem" :)

Cute! I have no clue what they are, but they're only "weeds" if you don't want them. ;)

I wish my weeds looked like that. :)

We have them. I think a nice bird dropped it off for us just like my raspberries.

We have them in our yard--until I find them and nuke them. They spread like wildfire and will soon choke out everything in their path if left alone. Those little bulbs just keep spreading and spreading and spreading . . . . .

Hi Lera,
We spoke a few months ago about the term WIP, not sure if you remember... being new to blogging, I commented on your comment via my own blog so am not sure if you ever saw it. I just wanted to say sorry for the confusion and thank you for answering my question :)
My blog has slowly taken shape and I'm now learning all the right ways of doing this :)
Greetings from London!
MJ
