North Ga - in the shade - the flowers are round pinky- purple with chartreuse tiny " dots " on the end. So pretty- there are many beautiful native - I guess weeds growing close by - lyre leaf sage, cosmos, morning glories - & these ... Will post pics. Thank you for the kind reply.

Your first one might be Sensitive Briar, a member of the Mimosa family.

The last one perhaps look into the Meadow Beauties, Rhexia family.
