Not Cuckoo Flower

I know the "cuckoo" flower/ LADY'S SMOCK. & at first glance that's what I thought this was. Is similar flowers but taller & different type of leave.

Ah well!

At least I said I wasn't sure! I don't think I've ever seen Cardamine amara before. Now I'll know to look carefully!

Very similar but the violet

Very similar but the violet anthers make it stand out.
