    Possibly a Bulbinella, although I got no photos of one in that color during a quick look at Google image search results - and there are a lot of different kinds of bulbs. I am sure I have seen the same one in bulb book(s), but have nothing covering those that bloom at this time of year in my current greatly reduced library.

    Nothing in wikipedia indicates that they would appear in this colour either... This is a stumper...

    Try the Phillips & Rix Bulbs picture book.

    Hm, I think this pic is not enough to a correct ID, but it looks like a Scilla sp. ... (S. hyacinthoides ?)
