Geranium, 'Brookside', one of the longest blooming perennial Geraniums I have. It has tall stems that somewhat flop after heavy rains, then peak up from between surrounding plants. The centers start sending up a new mound of growth, quickly hiding the bare spot left from the original flopping stems:

Geum, 'Blazing Sunset'. This flower is only 1" in diameter. I had to move it away from Jupiter's Beard, because the colors clashed something awful! It's a vigorous, long blooming plant:

Margo,

Yes, I have several 'Gold Standard' Hostas around my yard. I especially like them in the Fall when their centers REALLY turn gold.

Your 'Gypsy Rose' Hosta reminds me of my 'Strip Tease' Hosta. Maybe they're related?

Yes, 'Gypsy Rose' is a sport of 'Striptease'. The difference between them is that "Gypsy Rose' is smaller and the center is yellow.

Great photos with your new camera, Margo!
And what are those lovely magenta flowers floating over your 'Grand Master' Hosta?
