Wild flowers galore and a study in contentment

Since we stopped using insecticides on the land the number of wild flowers and birds has increased dramatically. However, our carefully and expensively nurtured lawns are being taken over by a rather beautiful but prolific wild plant - I think it must be a form of white wild crocus. If anyone knows its name please advise - all hints gratefully received. Wilf is as happy as a dog can be - so far today he has said hello to the lovely post lady,two electricians, five builders and three gardeners - naturally all have been presented with a ball to throw. This afternoon the plumbers are coming and some garden furniture is being delivered so the excitement isn't over yet. Readers of this blog will note from the photographs that as the day progresses the white fur around the mouth gets dirtier and dirtier and the overall coat more and more tangled.
