We used to call them Snowball Bushes when I was a kid. Not 100% sure that's what you have, but if they are, they aren't hydrangeas. They are viburnum:

Good catch Lori. It definitely fits the bill.

Feijoa selloana. It might have tasty fruit for you as well.

These are just the common yellow 'dancing lady' orchids, oncidiums, is how I think it's spelled. The folks in the orchid society kinda sneer at them since they're not fancy orchids, but I kinda like 'em. They're sunny and happy. They're next to the bunny hutch and get a lot of bunny manure dumped on them and they've cheered up a lot since they were put there. Somewhere under there is a flowerpot that they started out in, although they've escaped their pot.

Iris are so pretty! And they smell nice, too! Wish they were easier to grow around here. Only a few varieties of them will make flowers, I think.
