Trilliums are ace; this is Trillium albidum or white wake robin, these are growing at the bottom of a wall where they are afforded lots of protection. Trilliums are also known as Birth root; I think this because they are believed to stop bleeding hence the child birth references, they are over collected in the wild for gardens and are not easy to grow, Deer like to eat them too!
