Bloomage...

We have a number of flowers in our yard that are beautiful, but I only know what one of them is officially called. Any help naming these flowers would be appreciated.


I know this one - Tiger Lilly.  Which I believe may have some pretty strong orange pollen.  When touched to a little boys hair - it makes him appear to have highlights. (a little cool looking)


This almost has a lilly type of stem, currently growing in what i hope to be my fire pit come winter.


This is a tree next to the covered porch. Just started blooming.


This is a vine in the front yard growing and weaving it's way through my hedges.


This looks like a tree right now. That's because someone planted it next to a 4x4 post and it now has a thick trunk and grows up like a tree and out like a vine.


And last, this great smelling purple flower.  Getting pretty big in size now.

If I could authorize a giveaway like Becky did for the first person to successfully name all of these flowers, I would.  But I can't.  So sorry.

I think the "tree" next to the covered porch is a Hibiscus plant. I THINK!? Lots of beautiful flowers and plants!
