Yup, i'm pretty sure the middle one is this:
That sure does look like it...not sure why it's called "creeping", though. Mine is sure not spreading!

I was going to say that the second one looks like a variety of Campanula, but Otter's probably right.

And the third one is a mystery.
I used to have motherwort when I was in the city. This isn't quite that robust. Not nearly as many flowers, nor are the stems as robust. The leaves are different, too--none of them are tri-lobed like motherwort. They look a lot like the picture of hedge-nettle leaves in my poor late lamented field guide , but the flowers aren't as big as they show in the book.
