Some plant IDs!

This first shrubs is actually on our neighbors property, but it has grown through the fence- we enjoy it none the less. The second, it looks like a lilly, but it grows on a bush.

The first looks like white lilac - Syringa.

The second is either a Rhododendron or an Azalea; I can never tell the two apart.

I agree on the lilac, but the leaves aren't heart shaped, like I've seen most. These leaves are long, and narrow.

Thank you! I have yet to locate this specific type of lilac, but I'm still looking.
