Garden Time - What's Your Name?

Hello, Dear Ones! I can't believe I haven't posted anything since Monday but again...busy busy busy over here. I've been watching my grandbabies and we've also had some workers here installing some ceiling fans. Gotta have my breezy fan in the summertime at night. Now, I wanted to show you my flower beds and the progress the plants are making. I didn't plant any of this but I thank the previous owner very much. Okie dokie...here goes.
 This is a front yard flower bed and I took the snap last month.
 I was so happy to see pretty tulips coming up. This fall I will plant more so I'll have a better showing next spring.
 Fast forward to this month and you'll see the hostas are filling in nicely. I know there are so many varieties of hostas and the pretty yellowy green ones get tall and full.
  Here are a few tulips. Don't you think a tulip is the most beautiful flower?
 There are a few little lilly of the valley coming up. Seems there aren't many plants of the same kind, except hostas, mostly just one plant.
 Just one little sedum plant.
The hostas again. I just love these.
 I think this is a prime rose? Now this is where I'm asking for your help. I don't know what these next plants are and if you do I would really appreciate you telling me. I will thank you in advance.
 1. This pretty purple plant?
 2. This pretty purply pink ferny leafed plant?
 3. I like these but I don't know if they are a ground cover or if they are bushes. Do you know what they're called?
4. I have two of these plants. The leaves are so pretty and are a darker purple underneath but I don't know what they're called?
 5. Is this a ground cover with some pretty blooms?
 6. This is a pretty ground cover?
 This is a front side yard flower bed with a few hostas.
 This is the bed at the front of the house. There were a few little tulips and one daffodil that didn't do well. Of course there are more hostas. After I took this snap I did pull the weeds. Then...
 A big old dump trunk came with black mulch! If you look closely you can see the steam coming off it.
We got 10 yards of mulch and had it put down on our flower beds. We just didn't want to do it ourselves. It looks so pretty now and I'll show it to you later.

If you can help me with the names of these six plants I would be most appreciative. I don't have a green thumb like so many of you do so I know you just know everything! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;) 

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

What's Your Name?

What's your name?
I've seen you, before
What's your name
May I walk you to your door
It's so hard to find a personality, with charms, like yours, for me.
Ooh-ooh Ooh-ooh Ooh-Wee.

Oh, What's your name?
Is it Mary, or Sue?
What's your name?
Do I stand a chance, with you?
It's so hard to find a personality, with charms, like yours for me.
Ooh-ooh Ooh-ooh Ooh-Wee

I stood on this corner
Waiting for you to come alone
So my heart could be satisfied.
So please let me be your number one
Under the moon, Under the stars.
For always in your heart.

Oh, What's your name?
Is it Mary, or Sue?
What's your name?
Do I stand a chance, with you?
It's so hard to find a personality, with charms, like yours for me.
Ooh-ooh Ooh-ooh Ooh-Wee
Ooh-ooh Ooh-ooh Ooh-Wee
