These grow from bulbs and are all over my yard, front and back. The flowers appear every July and smell wonderful. Any ideas?

Looks like Amaryllis to me.

I would guess that it's some kind of lily. For the exact one, someone else will have to help. I'm a novice.

It is a day lily; the exact species I am not familiar with.

Looks like a cross between an amaryllis and a daylily!
EDIT: I just Googled hybrid amaryllis and found this one, which looks very much like yours, OP.

Almost a perfect match, except for the blackened tips on mine, which I'm sure are there because of this 105° heat.

Did it just sort of appear out of nowhere? If so it would probably be a Resurrection Lily.

I was going to say "Magic Lily" from a book I am still reading. I remembered it only because it was on my list for purchase in the fall. It turns out magic lily is another name for the Resurrection Lily which North Beach Person already guessed. The only thing that makes me unsure is that while the bloom time and appearance of the flowers are all OK it isn't supposed to have leaves right now, just the stem with flowers.

Surprise Lily, Magic Lily, or Naked Lady - Plant of the Week

Lilies at Green Spring Gardens « Beautiful Flower Pictures Blog: Floral Photography by Patty Hankins

The book I am reading is "Garden Bulbs for the South." It gives an alternate name of "hardy amaryllis"to the same plant... so a lot of people here were pretty sharp!

They appear every mid-July, you can hang your hat on that. So it's not like it was out of nowhere.
