Ok! I just pretty much identified that #3 is Carolina Cranesbill (Geranium carolinianum) thanks to @CaraRose and a google search with this blog http://elmostreport.blogspot.com/2008_06_01_archive.html.

I like the little flower but I think I'll have trouble growing it anywhere but the back end of my driveway.

First one looks like Securigera varia. Last one could be Chenopodium album.

I agree with Securigera varia aka Crown Vetch although I stared at the top down picture for several moments before I realised I was looking at a legume. Birds Eye view is aften difficult for id purposes.

Also agree on Chenopodium album.

lets shorten this ... all but the geranium are weeds ... and depending on how aggressive the G reseeds.. even that could be considered a weed in most gardens

in my garden anyway ...

fancy latin names dont change such ...

LOL @ken_adrian

I don't mind if they are considered weeds, that is kind of what i"m looking for, local native "weeds" that serve a purpose or are edible/medicinal.

I'm aiming to teach my three kids about some local flora - and if it's already growing in our yard, I'd like to keep it here. I limit the amount of pesticide we use as my kids and doggies love our yard.

I'm already letting our wild chicory and plantain weed go to seed. I've collected quite a few dandelion seeds as well.

If I have purslane, lambs quarters and hopefully violets they'll be making an appearance too.

thanks everyone!

You do have purslane, that's what the 'jade type plant' is.

And if that's the geranium I think it is it counts as a weed in my yard.
Not that that's a bad thing...

trathsack - an admirable sentiment. However, just for accuracy's sake, neither Securigera varia nor Chenopodium album is native in the US.
