I have this plant in my yard that didn't flower last year but I pruned it in the fall and noticed a bunch of buds and flowers on it recently. Can anyone tell me what it is? Thanks in advance!

It looks like some type of Camellia to me.

Edited to say: Well, I don't think the leaves are right for Camellia.

Hmm, maybe not, the leaves in the picture are opposite and camellias typically have alternate and thicker leaves.

So happy that someone was able to identify that beauty for you! Quince it is (Chaenomeles species). I couldn't find an exact match in our database but here's one for comparison to bloom and leaf:
