Siberian squill in blue and White.
It’s a bulbous perennial native to Siberia flowering in early spring.
Most specimens have blue flowers, but the variety alba is white.
At 15 cm (6 in), Siberian squill is suitable to be planted in grass, and will form large colonies that go dormant by the time grass needs to be mowed. ref: Wikipedia.

Captured at Mud Lake, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
