Heavenly hyacinths. (Hyacinthus orientalis (Hyacin)

They have bloomed this morning, but, crikey..the fragrance is overwhelming!
I think the scent may be affecting Eve..

Very pretty, but can be a bit overpowering 'en masse' indoors if you're near them for any length of time. Poor Eve: perhaps her 'receptors' are working overtime!!

Thanks, Ange, you are so right! Pretty but powerful! I do think Eve was being affected by the scent - she was running amok today!
