Dream garden flower identification

HouseFinchHouseFinch Posts: 327
These photos have been used on pinterest-sources were not included, links to unrelated websites, depending on which picture you select-so I cannot find a breakdown of the planting. It was probably nabbed from a Chelsea flower show and used for click bait all over the internet. Please help me by commenting the various flowers you can id. There are a lot.
I can spot white foxgloves, white roses, purple irises, Purple phlox, white aquilegia,..thyme along the rock pathway edging...but there are many I can't quite recognize. Many thanks :)

    I would say that was a Chelsea garden, made by a very knowledgeable gardener, to get those flowers all flowering at the same time takes very careful growing, planning and planting.  Ive never had white aquilegia flowering at the same time as the pink geranium in the second photo, there’s also forget me nots in there, mine are long gone. 

    It’s very pretty though and I would love to be able to replicate it, but I don’t think I could.

    I think I can spot hesperis ( sweet rocket ) and stipa tenuissima in there too.

    The bearded iris could be Jane Phillips.

    Me too @Hostafan1 and some Ragged Robin,  is that a Monarda next to the Iris? There’s some pink Toadflax and maybe Persicaria.

    There’s a little blue flower on a Brunnera next to the pink geranium and not a seed pod to be seen on the foxgloves, very careful planning and absolutely brilliant.
