Here is a pot of my Morning Glories...I'm thinking of transplanting them into a long flower box and setting it on top of my fence out back...what do you think?

Looks like everything's coming along nicely! The little purplish flowers that you can't remember are Lobelia. Also I could be mistaken, but your tiger lily looks an awful lot like an iris to me--any chance it was mislabeled? Here's a pic of a tiger lily: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/126095/ Unfortunately there are millions of different iris so I have no idea which yours is.

Your peace lily looks like it's getting sunburned--if they're outdoors I don't think they'd want to be somewhere that they get much sun so if you don't have a shady place for it I'd take it back inside.

For your first garden, you've managed to grow some really nice healthy and beautiful plants. I agree the yellow flower is an iris but such a gorgeous yellow! Now you can do what I would do--say you didn't get the plant you were really after so now you have an excuse to go out and buy another plant, LOL.

your 5th post (the beautiful pink flower) looks like a dianthus to me http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher%5Bcommon%5D=dianthus&searcher%5Bfamily%5D=&searcher%5Bgenus%5D=&searcher%5Bspecies%5D=&searcher%5Bcultivar%5D=&searcher%5Bhybridizer%5D=&search_prefs%5Bblank_cultivar%5D=&search_prefs%5Bsort_by%5D=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search
All looks good.
I agree with Ecrane, your peace lily looks a little battered (too much light?)
My best friend in Miami has one, it is located mostly in shade, with some dappled shade in the afternoon. It is a thirsty plant this one (contrary to all the postings I've read about the peace lilies), and it was in crazy bloom when I left (almost 2 weeks ago)
