Default Recognize this Wildflower?

This flower is blooming now (April 21) along all of the back roads in my area. It almost looks like a domestic bulb but I have not seen it growing in anyone's flower gardens, just wild along the edge of fields. It seems to like the shady areas.

Does anyone know what this is called?

That looked promising but I think that has only one flower per stem instead of multiple flowers on a stem like my flower.

All I know is they are some sort of lily.

Star of Bethlehem. Yes that's it! Thank you Linda. I had been searching all kinds of web sites and been unable to find it. Now that I see it is considered an invasive plant in many places I think that I will just admire it along the road and not bring any of it home.
