Spring has Sprung

Our winter which lasted all of a couple of weeks of coolish weather and in which the bees managed to fly most days seems to be over. The almond blossom has started and we noticed these wild small white narcissus. Only about 10cm tall, white and very beautiful.

I am pretty sure the bees don't visit them

They certainly visit this one though and I don't know the name of it. It is a straggly plant with lavender coloured 4 petal flowers.

Not much to look at but the bees love it. The leaves have a kind of milky sheen to them and the leaf joins the stem. I would appreciate it if anyone recognises it letting me know it's name.
