    $\begingroup$ It would help if you provided more photos, such as a detail of the flower (where petals and other structural elements can be counted), the stem, the leaves, etc. $\endgroup$

Those flowers don't come from the same plant as that big leaf in the front do they? Cant help you with the leaves, but the flower looks like a daylily. source: I know nothing about plants, but happen to have a mom who got a degree in horticulture :) Sweet daylily picture from wikipedia

    $\begingroup$ And the big leaf could come from some kind of zucchini. Source: grandmas garden. $\endgroup$

The flower is a Hemerocallis fulva (Hemerocallidaceae).

The leaf seems to be a Cucurbitaceae, as said above, the same family as the zucchini
