Just spend a weekend on the Isle of Wight. what an amazing place for plants and flowers. Although i managed to identify some...i need help with these 6. Hope someone knows what they are. 

Many thanks.

    I think the bottom one is sea thrift (armeria maritima) (assuming you mean the pink flower in the middle of the shot) and the next one up is a curry plant (helichrysum  italicum). The top one could be an erigeron (assuming you mean the pinky flowers behind the pot. Can't see what's in the pot on my screen)
