I dug these out of the garden bed at my new house. The largest one is the size of my fist. No greenery attached. Anyone know what they are?

I would guess they are Amarylis bulbs.

Sorry for the late response pirl, I'll send you a t-mail.
I'd tend to agree with Daisyl as to ID, ie - Amaryllis. the only other possibility might be X Amarcrinum.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Possibly lycoris?
Or... Amaryllis Belladonna...

I hadn't thought of Amaryllis Belladonna. They grow wild in many areas of California. Good thought Stone.
