Does anyone recognize these flowers?

golden_meliades , lucianus  and jdulac , I'm particularly thinking of you...

Here's the first one - sorry for the bad pictures.  They're between a foot and two feet tall, and I'm thinking it's some variety of campanula.  Any opinions?

This horrible picture was just for the leaf/plant structure:


This is the one that is really making me nuts.  It's not in bloom yet, but I need to plan where to move it, and I don't know what it wants!  You can see the flower spikes just starting to form.  It gets a long, droopy spike of teeny tiny white flowers - very pretty.  I can post new pictures once one blooms if we come up empty.  Also about a foot to two feet tall.

Looks like a campanula to me. Bellflower family - Campanulaceae - Bellflowers comprise an important group of garden plants, over 2 dozen of 300 known species in common cultivation for this handsome blooms.

Post a picture of the other mystery plant when it blooms.

Re: Campanula
Ah - I'm not used to you being here yet! That's what I thought - and when I saw how many bellflowers there are I gave up on the idea of trying to figure out which one it is! I'm disappointed that of all the Campanula variations out there that it isn't one of the thousands of blue ones. Maybe I'll buy some blue ones to mix in - that would be pretty.

The columbine and lady's mantle you gave me took nicely and even bloomed for me!

Re: Flowers
I've done that TONS of times. Still do it - *I* think I'm logged in, but for some reason I'm not. I still don't understand it.

Campanula--me too
It looks a bit like the Lady Bells in our front yard. Except ours are blue and go right down the stem. But the leaves look very similar.

Do you want some blue lady bells? We've got lots to share and there will be seeds galore in a month or so.

Re: Campanula--me too
I would love some blue lady bells! I'm not very good with seeds, but I can give it a try.

I'm still trying to figure out where to put them...
