It's a columbine.

Columbine images on Google

Btw: when they go to seed and naturalize, they are usually shades of purple with off white or shades of washed out fuschia.

Actually if you want to get "latin" about it it's an aquilegia. Columbine is the common names.

Jan, who has massives amounts of aquilegias seeding all over in reds, blues, pinks and whites, single and double.

The Columbine in my garden is yellow and white, but I have seen a variety of colours, many are two toned like mine.

A folk name for them is Granny's bonnets.
