The unknown flower

Spotted this blooming in the backyard a few weeks back. 

Early in spring we noticed some shaggy green leaves that grew in clumps in the same place. You can see the dried remnants at the base of the flowers. The leaves were quite shaggy looking and we have been thinking of digging out that area to make room for a herb garden.

These flowers looks very pretty and am hoping I can save them when we clean out the place.

And...thanks to the power of the internet and Google's search algorithms we were able to figure out that this is an Amaryllis Belladonna.
