Still Bloomin' [Edited with plant names]

Things are still blooming in the backyard. Lots of purple. The first one below is Lamium. It has pretty verigated leaves.
And this one is Salvia. More purple, of course. (Going to have to intermix some other colors!)
This one is Jacob's Ladder. What a surprise, it's purple!This beautiful poppy opened up overnight to stand up to the purple takeover. The bloom is HUGE. At least the size of my hand. There are about twenty other buds/pods on the plant. Oh, but purple did have to make an appearance. The pollen is purple!
Even the weeds are happily-a-bloomin'. :) I have no idea what these are called, but I think weed pretty much sums it up. I did notice that the weeds aren't purple. Maybe they'll have to stay.

They are very beautiful, but you must research and tell us what they are!!!!! Is that red one a peony??? Is that 2nd purple one Salvia???
