This is a little different today. For the forty years we have lived in our present home, each year these flowers have appeared in our front garden. They are a type of bulb and have spread quite a distance through the garden but have not become a nuisance. I have no idea what they are and thought perhaps, if I showed a photo of them, someone well versed in flower nomenclature may give them a name. They are very pretty and it would be nice next year to say "Oh look, the xxxxxx are in bloom again." Can you help?
At first I pulled them up thinking they may be a flower that has become a weed similar to the Watsonia spp. in our southwest but they don't seem to spread enough to cause them to become a problem in the wild. From the second year I just let them run free and am glad I have as they are cheerful companions in our garden.
