I tilled a narrow 50+ foot area next to the side of my house last summer and was planning on planting a ground cover this spring but wasnt able to get work in the garden as much as I wanted to (Im expecting a baby at the end of June). The area is bare soil that's mostly, if not ALL clay dirt. I have a few tulips & hyacinths planted in that area and the last one just lost its petals about a week ago.

It seems like in no time flat, a whole ARMY of weeds have sprung up all over the place. Ive decided to recruit some of the neighbor pre-teen boys to come over and pull them up for me but wanted some help in determining what they are. There are four different kinds popping up, with #1 being the most predominant and #4 showing up in only three or four places. Any and all help is appreciated. THANKS A MILLION :-)

Weed # 2 looks like 'creeping charlie' to me.

Weed # 3 looks like a 'thistle' to me.

Weed # 4 looks like a ground cover ivy type plant that I used to have that got a little purpley-blue flower on it.

If you figure out what kills creeping charlie let me know!
