It looks like Lilium grayi, maybe, or a hybrid of it. Need more info, ANY info, if you want a good answer.

Where was this taken?
In the wild?
do the flowers open more?
do you have a pic of the inside of the flower?

If these are Lilium grayi, I actually just bought a couple of these from Fraser's Thimble Farm as a Xmas present for someone in Western NC. That said, I became somewhat alarmed about the chance of them surviving after reading this:

It seems that there is a high percentage of hybridising with L. canadense so if you found these in the answer your question...they could be a bit of both. I know very little about id'ing lilies so I defer to the experts but if it is L. grayi....and on your property......research as much as you can...but if its yours, congratulations!!! you must be doing something looks very happy!
