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.

Maybe a double flowering Quince.

Many blessings for a wonderful month and a successful gardening season!

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:
