Snail vine, vigna caracalla flowering in my terrace garden

Welcome to another edition of Macro monday. This is what is blooming right now in my garden.
 Snail vine finally in bloom. Very sweet fragrance.

You will find all 3 colors on this vine. White, then purple and last one yellow. Very heat tolerant vine.

I captured this gram blue butterfly on the flower of hyacinth bean vine. Very fast growing vine and a relative of snail vine.

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.
