I found this plant laying on the ground in my garden. Does anyone know what it is?

Welcome!

It looks like a lily bulb.

Me too! Lily bulb was my first thought. Possibly dug up by some varmint.

Maybe it was planted too shallow. When the soil freezes, all the shallowly planted bulbs pot out of the ground. Smiling

Thank you all.
My neighbor has lilies in her yard. I suspect one of my backyard creatures dug up one of her plants.
