Thanks for the input and catching the two different flowers that I placed together.
Yes I was looking at these two groups too which have similarities between some species: range, color, flower as a raceme (elongated flower cluster with stalked flowers along a main axis) and palmate leaves (divided once into leaflets like a hand). So I concur that the first two look like larkspur, i.e. Delphinium sp. The third has more pea-like flowers which makes it more likely a lupine.
First two photos look like a Delphinium sp., but the third is a lupine (Lupinus sp.)
Is the third photo the same species?
