Send some picks to me. I should be able to identify them quickly. Just from the description and your location I would say the Lilium is L. michauxii and the Liatris is L. elegans.

The flower had yellow center with red on the outer portion. With red dots all in the yellow. They drooped down like Tiger lilies. The pollen thingies were large and red in color. I walked but just a couple of steps when I saw a few more plants but with seed pods. Each plant had one flower per stalk. TLooks like some kind of ugly Liatris bloom is what I think of. Kinda looks like Liatris leaves, very narrow and fuzzy. Hmmmmm I think. I scratch the earth at the base of the short lazy stalk. Slowly I see a small bulb appear just under the surface of the soil. Now all I need is to find an expert of Texas Liatris and Lilium to identify them. lol
