    Any chance of clearer pics to show detail of flowers/leaves?
    I can tell you the shrub in front right is Poncirus trifoliata..but cannot see any detail at all of pink flowered shrub behind it.

    poncirus trifoliata - Google Search

    Agree, not very clear, could be crape myrtle, Lagerstoemia indica, but can only guess really.

      I too would guess Crepe Myrtle, it has been in glorious bloom here of late.
