Any ideas out there? We have this cluster that blooms every May in our SW Virginia garden.

Looks like Star of Bethlehem, Ornithogalum umbellatum. Not native.

That certainly DOES look like it! Thank you! I'll have to check next year to see if the underside of the petals are green. The foliage is rather grass-like. They are very pretty but yes, not native, so odd. Don't know where they came from. :) The Internet says they are a bulb, too, so another oddity.
