I need a little gardening help

I have been gardening a lot these past few days and it's quite obvious that no one has done much in this garden in a long time. Even though it's hard work, I'm enjoying it immensely! 

I found these pods of some sort on top of the ground beneath the cherry trees. I have no idea what sort of seeds they contain. Can any of you great readers/gardeners help me identify them?

Thanks in advance.

Golly, that's not something I recognise at all so may be specifically NZish... they are super pretty though! Architectural even... YAM xx

I have a friend who is a very keen gardener
she said they are a bulb not a pod so we agreed that you could plant them in a pot and see what happens
also she said that if they really small, they could almost look like an old fashioned crocus :)
