Wordy Wednesday: From My Yard

We purchased our home less than a year ago. During this time, we have thoroughly enjoyed watching the flowers and plants arrive during different times of the year.  It seems as though when one plant becomes dormant, another blooms. 

Here are a few recent pictures from my yard.

I’ve been trying to figure out the name of this one. According to some googling, it appears to be an Agastache Blue Fortune. If that is incorrect, please let me know. Thanks.

Beautiful Phlox.  All of the plants and flowers in my yard are low maintenance, which is a definite plus for me!

I have always thought these were Black Eyed Susans but when I was looking on a website today, they had these listed as Redbeckia Goldsturm.  Perhaps that is the proper name for them.  Are these Black Eyed Susans to you?

This is a low growing creeper and looks great around the rock border.  It looks like this through nearly the entire year.  I would like to have more of this plant, so I would appreciate anyone helping me to identify it.

Happy Wednesday!
