I have a large patch of these growing in my yard and avoid mowing them as the bees are very attracted to them. I should know what they are, but, alas, I don't.

It's Claytonia. Likely Claytonia virginica but there are several species with similar looking flowers. The shape of the leaves should help with identifying. Smiling

Had never seen those before, but I wouldn't mow them either because they are gorgeous!!! The bees are an added bonus.
Lucky you, Mac!

Thank You! @GrammaChar They're growing in the middle of the back yard. I think I'll just leave them until they die back.
