And the third one.
Danke Schon.
Beautiful flowers - thanks for the continuing show!
These look like species of Pearly Everlasting (Anaphalis). These two pictures could easily be different species - the leaves seem different in the two.
The first one could be Anaphalis margaritacea

The flowers are not yet open.
The second one could be Anaphalis busua or Anaphalis contorta. I am assuming that some of the flowers are actually open, but the petal- like white bracts remain erect and do not spread out, which is a characteristic of these two species.
