Saw in a friend's yard and she doesn't know what it is. Neither do I. Hilarious! Hopefully, someone can ID it for us. Thank you!

Yep, Camassia.

Camassia angusta and Camassia scilloides are the two species that are (more or less) native in your part of the world, but Camassia leichtlinii is the species that is most often used as an ornamental. I'm not familiar enough with them to be able to tell you how to figure out which one it is. Sad

Camassia angusta and Camassia scilloides are in TX. Check the leaves, the flowers look like C. angusta ..
