I have the first one as well and I think that Cindy is right. I was thinking that the 2nd one looked like my primrose leaves coming out of the ground.

First is certainley lupine..got lots of these. Expect beautiful long spiral flowers by late June, early July.
Second I think is primrose as well, but it could be foxglove or digitalis..you will have to wait and see...but if I were a gambler I would say primrose...expect to see some tiny flowers soon. You can remove the dead leaves.
No idea about the third. But I am sure someone will recognize this baby.

first could be a lupin...or oxalis.... Lupins have bigger leaves...how big are the leaves on this...Lupin leaves are between four to five inches...oxalis would be maybe one and a half inches.... the second is a rather ratty foxglove..(sorry) that could fill out....and the third is white arabis...or rock cress.

ahhh Rock Cress, she has the pink ones too. They're really nice.

The leaves are pretty large on the middle, and I remember the flowers now. I knew she had a lot of bell shaped ones, but couldn't remember the names. Once I saw the pics for the Lupins I recognized it.

I took the pic from about 10' away, it was raining and I was under the gazebo.
