Help identifying these wild backyard plants

Plano, TX

These backyard plants have been growing in the exact same spot for the past 5 or 6 years, they just came out of nowhere. The first one next to the shed makes little lavender purple flowers if I remember correctly, and it grows very long at full length.

Get some close ups of the plants you are interested in ID'ing. I see more of the walls and the bench than the plants in these photos.

The 1st picture is a beautyberry. The one growing through the bench is a ligustrum lucidum.

Agree with nel on American Beautyberry (Callicarpa america) and the Privet (Ligustrum lucidum).

With some clearer closeups, I think I could ID a Black Walnut and a Callery Pear in that image as well.

Birds and squirrels are big fans of bringing seeds to odd places...
