Hey Christy, I have some of those too! lol lol
I was just going to post a topic.. I had no idea what they were either!

I had them randomly across the yard, just noticed them this year... dug 'em up to find bulbs! shock That suprised me...

Now, I can put them where I want them next year! lol

Well that was a mystery solved for me too, I have some that I guess my dad gave me--I had no clue what they were and he didn't either.... lol

It's been bugging the heck out of me wondering what they were.

i posted asking about these last year...showed up in my grass.

i marked off the spot so that i could pull them and move them into one of the beds. didn't get a chance to do that last year.

just moved them last weekend (had to wait for them to come up and then bloom). there is a nice sized bulb with a few smaller bulbs attached...i split them out and put them in one end of the bed...

very pretty little flower - if you watch at dusk, the flowers fold up (they'll re-open in the morning).
