These flowers are lovely. They are called Jonquils. Once planted they will return year after year and are usually the first flowers to appear, at least in my yard, in the spring. I saw them start appearing a few weeks ago but today is when the blooms started to open. In a few days the blooms will open completely. Jonquils can grow in full sun or in partially shaded areas. I planted mine in the corners of my yard, around trees and shrubs and as a border to a walkway.
