help with this bulb?

Hi, this comes up beautifully every year, but dies away before it blooms. I thought maybe a lily or allium? If anyone knows why they are dying I'd appreciate help there too. Thanks!

This is what happens every year. They are all over my garden and they all end up like this, so sad!

Looks a good bit like Amaryllis belladonna. The foliage and the flowers appear at different times.

Looks similar to Colchicum foliage. Most of them bloom in autumn. This time of year the leaves die off.

Can you dig up a bulb to show us ?
