I wish I knew the names of my hostas; ah well. This one has lovely big white blooms, over gorgeous big blue-green leaves. Not sure what the next one is -- a poppy, perhaps? It will be clearer when it opens; there's just the one. The hydrangea is a new one -- I think it's Let's Dance? Either that or Cityline Mars, but I think the former. The clematis is so happy on the garden gate.
I think both of the first two are types of veronica? I'm not sure; they're rather different in the details, but have a similar overall appearance. Pink monarda is happy -- I'd still like to get some of the native blue variety, but I haven't seen it in nurseries around here. The sea holly is finally picking up its blue color. What a gorgeous shape it has, and it makes a great cut flower too, though be careful you don't poke yourself cutting it!
