Sea daffodil,hyacinth bean vine, solanum shrub flowering

Monsoon rains started few weeks ago and temperature has lowered down with increase in humidity. Plants growth rate accelerate in these rains. Many plants are in flowering right now. Here are some of those:
This is Sea daffodil (pancratium maritimum) started sending blooms. The ones in soil bed just started sprouting. Which means they like pot bound for quick blooming. Bloom lasts just one day but they multiply good for mass effect. Ismene festalis, its cousin is also growing good but no flowers yet.

This blue flowering shrub i am unable to ID, any help? I think it is related to solanum family. Blooming profusely in Lawrence gardens lahore. Flowers are not fragrant but blooms are profuse.

This is bauhinia tomentosa,Yellow Bauhinia blooming in lawrence gardens lahore. Not a very prolific bloomer but pretty blooms.

Strangely the buds are pink colored while flowers are entirely of different color.

This is dolichos lablab, hyacinth bean vine. No fragrance in flowers but pretty blooms in lavender color.

This yellow flowering vine is blooming in lawrence gardens lahore but i am not sure which species it is. Still looking for confirmation of ID though.

That yellow Bauhinia amazes me! You mean the young flower buds are purple which eventually turned yellow when it is fully open? I am curious to have it!

Those sea daffodils are beautiful! I'd like some of those - also the hyacinth beans!

A yellow bauhinia with reddish buds? This is special. The purple bean flower is very pretty too.

At the risk of being redundant because I’ve already said that in previous comments, your photos is absolutely stunning. It makes me want to run out and take a few photography lessons, actually more than a few.

The Sea Daffodils are so delicately gorgeous. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this specimen before and it saddens me to think this such beauty only lasts for a single day.

The unidentified purple flower looks like a potato bush. I have a couple here in arizona.
