Found this volunteer blooming the other day. One pic shows the leaves, and in the other 2 pics I've tried to capture the blossoms. Does garlic chives seem like the correct ID?

these spread easily, be careful where you put them and be sure you really want them.

Garlic chives spread by seed only. But plants must be dug out, not pulled. Roots don't begin until an inch or more below the surface.
