does anyone know what this is? it's in my north bed apparently has just one leaf. I feel I should know what it is, but it looks rather alien:-) Looking at pics, it's possible the thin leaf is not attached to the plant:-)

It is the time for Arum's to start appearing. Not all have leaves before the flower stalk.

Do you have Solomon's seal [Polygonatum]in the garden, it looks a bit like that. I don't think the thin leaf belongs to it either.
it is also similar to false spikenard [Maianthemum racemosum]

if it is either it will produce white flowers on an arching stem.

Thanks both, I did have some polygonatum I think some time ago, so it's possible, such a thick stem. I suppose I'll just have to wait and see.

Looks like Solomons Seal to me too. Mine are just coming up out of the soil like this.
