I bet someone out there will know

This morning was a later start as I took advantage of being able to have a lie-in.  I'm not a morning person, never have been so when I get chance to lie-in I take it :-)  
I had nothing In particular to get up early for, the appointment for my massage was not until lunch time.  I've been suffering with really bad muscle tension in my neck and into my shoulder blade, It got really painful a couple of weeks ago and all the doctor could advise was taking ibuprofen, not something I want to keep taking long term so I booked to have a massage last Friday to see if it would help.  
She could not believe how tense my muscles were, she kept saying 'wow!' and 'oh my goodness!' and I'm thinking, at last, someone who understands how much pain I've been in!

I can actually feel the muscles popping when shes working them, it's a little uncomfortable and a bit painful, but in a nice way, it feels so much better afterwards, and if it works I can stand a bit of that sort of pain.
  Today was my second visit and I feel even better after this one, so something is working.  She has said that these muscles must have been tensed up for a long time, she will be able to soften them up but it will take a few sessions. 

Other than going to my appointment I've had quite a lazy day at home, I was looking around the garden this afternoon and there are some plants that were already in the garden when we moved in and I have no idea what they are, but I know that quite a few of you who read my blog are into your gardens too and you might be able to help me out?

This one is huge and I would like to reduce some of the height after it's finished flowering.  
Last year it only flowered on the lower half, which was a bit strange, this year there are hundreds of flowers all over! It did get a bit wind damaged a few weeks ago and a couple of the boughs are very low over the grass.

Please leave me a comment if you can help with names for any of the plants above.

Thank you for all the lovely comments on yesterday's post.  It's a pity I can't leave my machine out all the time so I could practice more but the small bedroom where I keep all my crafty supplies is not big enough to fit a table in as well as the single bed.  Perhaps one day I could just have it as a craft room but for now I'm not ready to tackle that job.

I haven't got anything planned for tomorrow except for some freezer cooking.
Living the high life here, lol

The first looks like delphinium. Not sure about the rest. Does the last one smell wonderful? If so it might be mock orange(not the scientific name). I hope this helps.

Beautiful plants, I too think the first is a Delphinium, the second a Himalayan Nutmeg, not sure about the next one but I also think the last one is Mock Orange Blossom, and it brought back memories for me thinking of the wonderful intoxicating smell of the flowers.

Yes the ladies are right in naming the plants that's what I would have said .
Hope you are feeling pain free now.

There's always someone in Blogland who can help. Glad your massages are relieving the pain, I rarely go to the doctors these days as they're never much use.

first one looks like a delphinium but I'm not sure about the second. May a Myrtle or Philadelphus??

Hope the massage continues to relieve the pain.

I only knew the delphinium. Sorry. I hope you are back to normal soon after this massage.
