I've noticed in the some of the yards here in TN, a flower on a long tall stem, with a pink flower on top is blooming now.

I can't find this flower in my garden books. Anyone have an idea what this flower is called? Is it a perrenial?

I appreciate your help.

RE: Long Stem with Pink Flowers on Top

Over the past two weeks in my drives around town, I have also seen a light pink flowering plant with tall stems and no leaves along the stem. I think it is "surprise lily" aka "naked ladies". If memory serves me, it is one of the Lycoris, although I don't remember which one.
