What is it??

What am I?

Do you know what kind of flower this is?
Last year in this tree there were just the straight, spiky leaves...
This year they have these buds on them and opened up into these flowers...
I looked at all different kinds of flowers, thought it was an iris but I actually planted iris bulbs and this is what they look like...

This is the iris I planted...the leaves are also really thin and cylindrical ( oooh big word too much geometry with Jimmy ) and not straight or spiky like the other. The other one has a thick, bumpy yellow thingy too? Pretty...but strange!

Glad you got an answer of bearded iris. I could also add it is one of my mother's favorites - that particular color even.
