Magical Mystery Flower

I still don't know exactly what I've got in my garden. Each spring so far (this is the 3rd) I head outside and start pulling weeds and bluebells. Last spring I pulled up many little bulbs that I thought were bluebells, but were in fact stars of jerusalem... at least that's what my mom called them. So this year instead of pulling up everything I reach for I'm only pulling up what I know to be weeds. Which brings me to the "Magical Mystery Flower". It's got these wierd shaped leaves- tightly growing like an iris, but really small. One day I noticed that it had a stem with 6 little buds on it. Okay, leetle flowers, if that's what you really are, I'll let you grow. A few days later the first one bloomed. Wow! They're really delicate smelling and have yellow way down in the centre, otherwise they're pure white with 6 petals. Sa-weeet! Still don't know what they are.
The magical mystery flower is coming to take me away. Coming to take me away, take me today!

Perhaps, Romulea? Kinda like a crocus. Are they from bulbs?
