I live here in Salem and recently a few plants in my yard came into bloom. I don't have a clue what they are except one is some sort of yellow lily. Can anybody help me out?

Yellow Lily

Purple Puffy Flower

Sorry if I'm not supposed to link like this I'll make a web page to refer posters to if I need to.

It is fine to link like that, but on the first two, it would help to see pictures of the leaves too.

The last one, a yellow puffy flower, looks like Kerria japonica, a shrub.

Forgot to mention

I'm sure you can tell by the name that Kerria japonica is not native. I don't know if you meant to post this in the Native Plant forum or if you meant to post in the Name that Plant forum.

Here is a link that might be useful: Name that plant forum

RE: Help with flower identity

Thanks I'll get some photos of the leaves for the other two and
post them in the other forum.
