Please help Identify Flower!

Hi, we moved in to an older home built in 1950, for the last 3 year
this flower comes up and I would like to know what it is, it looks lik some kind of lily but I'm not sure. Every year it starts out lookin like a large clump of thick bladed grass, then that all dies back t the ground in late July, early August. The plant looks like it died then about a week later it shoots up four to five strong spikes wit clusters of buds just at the top. It is pink with some blue tones to i and smells like Lilacs. Any Ideas as to what it is? Michel
