Leopoldia comosa

aka Muscari comosum. Same family (Liliaceae) as hyacinth and onions, they have an edible bulb and are known -and heavily collected- in Southern Italy as Lampascioni (but pronounced Lambascioni, letters P and B are very interchangeable in S Italian pronounciation, like B and V in Spanish). You can even buy cans of vinegar-treated Lambascioni at the supermarket!

Honeybees crave them too and they storm the surviving plants...

... and I fixed it for you, Bent :)

These are quite common on the southern coastline in Norway, by the way. Arrived via ballast from the tall ships hundreds of years ago.

Tulipa sylvestris they spread in the northern part of our country, Friesland, and in the west, Holland and Zeeland, i have never seen them.
