    The first one isn't golden rod - it's the yellow loosestrife Lysimachia punctata.
    [Golden rod is Solidago]
    The yellow one is a sedum, but I cant remember it's name, and the pink one is as well.If @wild edges is around, he may be able to ID those.
    Is the grey one Cerastium ?[snow in summer] I can't see it clearly enough.
    Don't know the last one. I think a close up of the flowers would help  :)
    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin
    Again

    3. I know as white rock, very common, but can I find its botanical name?…
    here is an earlier pic of it in flower if helps and with my No 4 behind it also which is difficult to photograph well. Clouds of tiny white flowers on stalks over fern type foliage

    Yes - Cerastium tomentosum  :)

    I still don't know the other white one - sorry!

    Just had a thought - is it a cultivated type of Filipendula? Meadowsweet.

    I looked that up - and Filipendula vulgaris looks very similar.

    We need @nutcutlet or @Silver surfer   :)

    Thanks FG,
    You have made my day already with ID's on 2 of my long standing posers.
    I'll hope for input from others with the remaining ones

    No probs. Wild edges is good on sedums/stonecrops so he may know the names on those two. The yellow one is very common - it grows all over the place, but it may just be the bog standard 'stonecrop' without a posh name, if you know what I mean!  ;)

    You are right, Filipendula vulgaris, aka Dropwort or something like that. Complete opposite to Meadowsweet, likes a very dry site
