Clumps of these in a small woodland beside the river Tweed. I'm sure it must be a simple common flower, but I can't find it in either Collins or Blacks book. Long slender leaves.

I recognised that as one I found on the Tay a couple of years ago, so I went to see what it was called and found I never did get a name for it...

Would they be these ??
That looks very like them. I was just having a go at using the flower id app on my tablet, only to find it needed updating, and then it wanted £20 a year to use it! So, I uninstalled it and found another free one. I fed it my photo from the Tay, and it came up with "Forbes' Squill". When Googled...



... also known as "Glory-of-the-snow".

Result! (y)

Glad to put that one to bed after 2 years!

Interesting one, took a walk along the river Kelvin and then along the Allander, these are dotted along the bank but fairly colonised along a ditch and into nearby woods....

That's the one(y) not surprised its regarded as an invasive species having seen how many have appeared.

I saw loads of these last spring somewhere, and can't for the life of me remember where!!

Much like in your photo, very prolific.
