Something in the Onion family? Chive maybe?

Rosemarie you might be right. i might need some help here. Is it Scottish thistle or Spear thistle? Impressive plant that we don't seem to have round here. Good enough to have in the garden.

Also very popular with the bees

That's a Spear Thistle (Cirsium vulgare). Scots Thistle (Onopordum acanthium) has silvery leaves and is much taller.
