Plant ID photos #1-#3

I can't make photos <60k that seem useful. Here is the first unknown plant in my garden. I have a few somewhat larger specimens too.

Here is plant #2. I have at least 2 dozen clumps of this clover and don't know if I should keep it. It was pretty all winter. Good for the soil, I think? Will it die back this spring when it gets hot?

Here is plant #3. Another kind of clover I guess. Does not grow as large or thick as the one above. Again, I have several of these.

Thanks for any help. 12 more plants to go (no more clover).

Not up on Texas weeds I'm afraid but your middle 'clover' is an Oxalis. Not a Nitrogen fixer like true clovers and also many of them are really hard to eradicate because they produce hundreds of bulbils.

The third one I don't know but I can tell you it isn't a clover.

#1 might be wild carrot or Queen Anne's lace, Daucus carota.

#3 might be Bowlesia incana?

Regarding plant #1, did you ever have Love-in-a-Mist (aka nigella) planted in the area?

It self-seeds like crazy and the seedlings look very similar to that.

Once it crosses for several generations though the colors get too "muddy" and it isn't pretty any more.
