I have no idea what these are, but they reminded me of little bells ringing in the new season (they're probably called something like "white bellringers or something).

The only problem I see with this photo is that the flowers and leaves are partially in the shade. Use of fill flash or some kind of reflector to reflect more of the sunlight on to the flowers would really help bring out the detail. You can buy portable reflectors that twist-fold into a case about the size of a saucer. They fit easily into your camera bag. A large piece of poster board or other white material also makes a good reflector.

Aside from the lighting, this is a very good photo.

Very good effort. As Cal indicated, a close up would have been a bell-ringer!

Pretty flowers. I don't know what they are butI don't think they are Wisteria. The Wisteria leaf and flower aredifferent (I have them in my backyard). Besides, I don't believe they are blooming yet (at least mine isn't).
