We have these all around the house we bought in fall. What are they? When should they flower?
The previous owners were great fans of bulbs and flower beds.

Looks like Paeony to me, not sure which variety other than to say one of the herbaceous perennial types. Flowering time is usually late April and May here in the UK, but yours don't seem quite so well advanced, so maybe nearer June. Some varieties flower a little later, around late June/early July.
Just to add... Peony flower heads get heavy and they tend to droop. They make supports for peonies which you might want to look into. They're also very susceptible to powdery mildew so you should keep an eye on that. I've had success with neem on peonies with powdery mildew.
Otherwise fairly easy plants to take care of. At the end of the season, beginning of winter, cut the plants down to the ground. Rake away any debris and keep free of fallen leaf debris.
