This looks like a pale Lobelia growing all along a water run here in southeast Pennsylvania. One person called it "Frog Flower." It does not seem to quite match up with the lobelia species that I see described in my field guide to wildflowers.

It looks like a Veronica species. Possibly...

Thank you two so much! Veronica sounds really good. I'll check it out further.
