Does anyone know what type of flower/weed this is. It smells like onions after mowing.

white wild onion...

the habit i see in the fools onion is the flowers are upright, while the wild onion is more drooping over like in your picture... so that is my best guess. :) there's a lot of onion/alliums!

It's taller but reminds me a little of the wild garlic

I really loved the smell of that garlic.
I'm thinking if grabbing some of that from the side of river when it sprouts up again

If you have a smart phone there is a feature allowing you to click on pictures of plants and most animals and it will identify them for you! On my phone your mystery plant is called a 3 corner Leek which would explain the onion smell!

It also told me “Wally” is a Mountain Cur.
