Spring flowers from the yard and woods

We have been doing a lot of walking in the woods this spring.  Sometimes we come across a tree we've never seen before.  Being natives of OH this happens fairly often with native FL trees,  This tree's flowers are very fragrant.  I learned that it's a Paradise Tree from my Tree Guide.
This is the Ashe Magnolia, the first tree we planted in the yard when we moved in 8 years ago.

Ashe Magnolia is a very slow growing tree.

Dutch Iris

Siberian Iris

Another tree we found in the woods is this pretty Sparkleberry

Jasmine we planted in the yard, but we see lots of it in the woods too.
