Purple flower Hostas and white Astilbis. Thanks to all who identified these.

Believe it or not these lovely plants are planted by the roadside on a quiet residential street near my place.  Isn't it amazing that people will plant small spaces in the city just to give the rest of pleasure?
I don't know what the white bush and the purple flowers are but they are lovely. I see there are also numerous varieties of hostas planted here. Maybe the purple flower is even from a hosta. I can't quite tell from my photos.

  5. I like the flowers people plant anywhere - whether city or country. We ahve a wild-flower that looks something like that purple one. I don't know the difference between a hosta and a hasty plant - but I do like them. ☺
