Heavenly hyacinths. (Hyacinthus orientalis (Hyacinth)inth)

They have bloomed this morning, but, crikey..the fragrance is overwhelming!

They are beautiful Kate but the scent can be overpowering , My daughter brought me a bouquet of Lilies a couple of weeks ago I had to put them in a room we didn't use very much as the scent was making my headache ...

I can understand that, Amy. I’ve since moved the potted hyacinths, we were all suffering a little bit.

Yes the scent is powerful. I have to place lillies outside as the smell gets to me. I have Hyacinths blooming in the garden.
