Hi Gilbert,
  Your picture reminds me of the Silver Bell or Snowdrop bush.  They are in 
the Halesia genus and I believe that H. Monticola (mountain snowdrop tree) is 
the most common. It is native in the mountains of the south-eastern USA and 
was introduced in about 1897.  I think I saw some nice specimens in Sheffield 
Botanic Garden when I was last there about five years ago.  
   
  All the best

  Please could someone identify the attached. They are five-winged seeds
from a large untidy deciduous shrub 3m x 3m obviously an ornamental
planting and on light land.
