Whats blooming in my yard

I thought it would be nice to post a few pictures of what  I have flowering in my yard right now.

Bulb Garden
 My wife wanted me to plant tulips this year since she missed having them. Two bloomed, the rest fried. At least he Irises are doing just fine,

Iceberg Rose - Pink
 The only rosebush I have is doing good, I planted two more earlier this year that have not sprouted yet.

Rocky point ice plant
I also planted 3 of these ice-plant bushes a few weeks ago, it is supposed to have a higher heat tolerance so we shall see if it survives.

Cape Honeysuckle
 I am training this Cape Honeysuckle into bush form. Its more commonly found as a vine. Cape Honeysuckle has a very high heat tolerance and can be planted in southern exposure.

Halls Honeysuckle
This is a different kind of honeysuckle I have growing up a trellis on the west side of my house. The vine struggled all last year after I planted it, this year it has gone crazy with flowers and new growth.

P.S. Anyone want to buy an R.V.?
