Some of them may not bloom at all this year, but it was from an overgrown garden whose owner said that she would just grab seeds and throw them all over her back yard. It actually looked very nice before she decided to plow it under.
#1 Started out smaller, and now had grown this big and doesn't seem to be doing anything else. About 1.5 round and 4-6" tall. More prostrate.
#2 there are three that are the same plant (this one and 4 & 5). At first I thought it was a poppy that I planted, but then it grew more and the leaves look like this. Fairly large and furry.
#3 is the same plant as #1 with some lemon balm, part of a hollyhock, columbine, oregano, alyssum, a daisy seed head, and some other misc. (looks like I found some more bindweed too)
#4 same plant as #2 zoomed out, with more of the random mix of plants surrounding it...and I think some snow on the mountain(Aegopodium 'Variegatum') as well.
#5 underside of the leaf of the plant in #2 & #4. (And more bindweed to pull! I'm going crazy with that stuff!!!)
