UPDATE: Chris and Robyn both think this is a hyacinth, so I am going with it. It did smell divine when I was photographing it.

I find so many flowers that I love while walking, hiking or even driving by. Many times I stop and try to capture their personality, I try to carry my camera with me as much as I can.
