I added two new native White Cedar trees yesterday. Put one in the front yard and one in the back near my garden area. I believe the smaller tree in my native garden is the same kind, but unfortunately, I don't know for sure. I didn't care what plants were back then, and I wasn't able to find the tag.

Nice picture! Did you use tilt-shift effect? It look like out of focus on the sides making it looking like a small playground :)

I add blur in post-production. No one wants to see my neighbor's ugly garage clearly! :LOL: I always try to add a slight blur to buildings and structures in the background so the focus is on the garden area. (y)

This was in profuse blooming nearly 3 weeks ago. The open at around 5 in the evening and stay open only for about 3 hours. I think each flower will do it for 2-3 days - have not observed closely though for a precise piece of information. It'd be dark by the time it closes and I forget to do that. This is Eleutherine plicata plant. The bulbs are narrowish and reddish purple. Last year I lost many bulbs to the rats that seemed to relish this. I used to get shocked when I saw the bulbs being dug up. Later I carefully saved the bulbs and rested them in. I replanted them late last season and I did not water regularly for the winter months. It started blooming in April.
