Identification Assistance- STATS ONLY

(Question)

Am hoping to get some assistance with identifying the following emerging growth in my flower bed. I don’t recall seeing it last year, although it is in the general location where large yellow tulips emerge year over year.

Photo attached.

I’m really sorry for the delay.  It took a while before we could make a positive ID.

Indeed, these are your tulips. This means the squirrels didn’t eat them all!

Enjoy.
