Weed flower

I found this flower growing among the weeds in my yard before I mowed it last weekend. It seemed to be coming up in a bunch of wild onion.  It’s about an inch tall and less than half an inch wide and is really intricate!  The picture doesn’t really do it justice.  It lasted 2 or 3 days out of water on the counter, which surprised me.  Does anyone know what it is?

    Grape hyacinth maybe? Did it have any leaves?

    Definitely a grape hyacinth – one of my favorite flowers! I even have one as a tattoo:

    I understand that they’re very hardy – they were all over my grandma’s yard, and came back every year, without prompting.

    I see you got your answer – grape hyacinth – I grow them in my borders as Spring flowers as my gran always used to have them in hers. They are indeed very hardy and come back year after year.
