It looks to me like one of the arums http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arum_maculatum
a bit early to say whether the wild or the cultivated version, although the unspotted leaves points to it being the wild version. I rather like them, they remind me of wandering wild in the spring countryside as a child - but I know many people really dislike them.
The leaves appear in the winter and spring, and then the spathe (flower) - after which the plant dies down leaving just the orangey red berries on a stalk.
