My First Garden Ever!

My husband and I purchased our first home in December. Since then I have been dreaming about building a garden along the fence of the farmers field behind our house. This is what I have so far!
What are these again? Primrose?
Butterfly weed? or Lavender? Lavender I think!
Yellow peppers... mmmm.
Gayfeather. The butterflies love these!
Hello Dahlia... just starting to bloom.
Whole garden!
