This little plant has begun flowering in a few places in my garden in western Cyprus. I am fairly sure it is wild. But I have no idea what it is. Please help if you can. It is about 20cm tall. The umbels seem to be hanging their heads in shame; that is their habit (they are not under/over-watered).
