Foilage looks to me like it could be in the Tulip family. Whatever it is...it is a very pretty flower. Is it wild or in some ones garden?

Looking at what I can see of the leaves I would say some type of tulip. Neat flower. We had some yellow ones with red in them that had fringed petals rather than pointed ones but the color is very similar.

It looks like it might be a kind of shriveled up Monsella Tulip

Here are some planted among some other kinds of tulips
