I have some land out in the country that I go out and mow occasionally, and today while I was there I saw this one pink flower amongst all of the grass and weeds. This was my great aunt's place years ago, but nobody has lived there in decades. The flower looks like a daylily to me, but I didn't see any leaves, it was about 3" across.

Looks to be a hybrid daylily called 'Hall's Pink Lady'.

Not a clematis, it's a lily. You have to look at all the reproductive parts of the flower. The OP's flower has a distinctive lily stigma. Clematis flowers don't have stigmas that look like lily stigmas.

Sounds like a rain lily to me, the leaves are grassy looking so you may not notice them

I think you're right. Everything about it looks identical to OP's flower.

Hmm, very odd that it was where it's at, there's nothing around that place but cow pasture.

Squirrels like bulbs, maybe one carried it off and forgot it. (or became a snack for some other critter)
