    Hibiscus came to mind first for that first flower though no sign of long pistil.

    Do you actually know the identity of the white flower and are testing everyone? I have no idea on it.
    Gorgeous purple flowers - I would have thought wisteria also, but I think that's a vine whereas your pic appears to be a tree.

    I didn't think tulip but I bet that is the correct answer.

    Yes is a white and green parrot tulip
    I always have a few parrot tulips in my garden but this year they came out stranger than usual
    and the purple flowers belong to a old vine, as thick as a tree, and I was told is a species of Acacia. It has a very heavy, stinky smell so you are the lucky ones since you can enjoy the view without the stench
