No.... it is not a bulb.
Yes ...it can be found in gardens AND in the wild.

Err... no it could not be a waterlily..see link.
Waterlilies are even larger than Tulips!

Detail on my pic not 100% sharp even with close up.
Think SMALL flowers.

Anyone else willing to have a go?

There is really very little to go on, It has four petals, four sepals, Large Pistle raised, stamens clustered, cannot see leaves though looks long stem, I assume its perennial, and its small so dont have any idea of scale therefore you have to help us a little.
