What Flower Is This ?????

Whilst we were walking round the garden at Thrumpton Hall, featured yesterday, we saw this most unusual flower and could not put a name to it.

If anyone has any idea what it might be perhaps they could enlighten us.

no idea.
My ID-ing capabilities are often shown up as awful
I'll, instead, enjoy the beauty instead.
Nice one(s)
Cheers

Whatever it is, you've got a great capture here, Brian.

Possibly some kind of bromeliad...

Very interesting, whatever her name.

No idea but you capture them very well Brian!

Ok..problem solved. Joanie says they are 'Frittilaria Imperrialis'. They are from bulbs and the flowering period is April and May. A lovely show Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, they are indeed, I checked on Google, full marks to Joanie.
Well done Joanie! I'll remember to refer to you when I see a flower that I don't know the name of.
