Found this growing in front of someone's house, beautiful flowers but no idea what tree.

Any ideas? Google lens results weren't helpful.

Thinking elm, zelkova, or hawthorn.

Can anyone help me identify these cluster flowers that started growing in my garden? My partner and I are not certain what they are or how they got here, but they’re quite pretty. We are in climate zone 10 according to the 2023 plant hardiness zone map.

Morning y'all, anyone able to identify this "weed?" It grows very low to the ground and has tiny blue flowers. Seems to be one of the first bloomers of the year

A neighbor I was close with recently died and their family asked if I would take the plants, of course I said yes, but 2 of them I know very little about.

I think they might be the same plant at different life stages? Can anyone help me ID these?

Please ID. This plant has been emerging every season in my garden. It typically grows as a low lying herbaceous annual to 30cm high and 60cm wide.

Thank you

I think it is an Alocasia amazonica ‘Ivory Coast’? Or an Alocasia Longiloba/Lowii Pink Dragon?

This grass has been growing in a few of my outdoor pots and I don't know where it came from.

Pacific northwest (Vancouver)

These were sold to me as Senegalia roemeriana, but really don't look like any pictures I'm seeing. Any ideas?

Maybe chamomile

Maybe chamomile

If it is indeed Chamomile I'd like to harvest some of it for making a few teas. I also don't want to ruin the fun for others and I want to contribute to more of it growing in that area next year. So if anyone has some tips on responsible harvesting chamomile from a public space, I'd love to hear them. It doesn't look to me like it was put there on purpose, as it is growing in by a small park but between many other bushes.

Also, I just read that harvesting a flower from a public space is technically theft or poaching according to Dutch law (Art. 314). If the Royal Family owns the land it would be a felony according to someone in Quora, but I could not source that. However, it appears that responsible harvesting small amounts for own use is tolerated in practice if one is not abusing 😅

EDIT: Found a good video about harvesting Chamomile: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ci1vPMh2fVM

And... can I use them to make a herbal tea? They smell nice.

Another image farther away:

August appears to be great for flowers. I have been walking around smelling and photographing plants that I think might be good candidates for brewing herbal infusions, so now I need to figure out which ones might actually be good for that.

There were a few of these plants next to each other, but not all of them had this bright purple coloration. I suppose there might be an acidic spot by the roots, but I'm not sure.
