These grow in abundance throughout  my yard. If not weeds they'd make nice additions to rock garden.this one has a bit of fuzz on leavesthis one looks like creeping thyme but I could be wrong.just not surethis one is a mass of same plant in one location.looks purposefully plantedrose bush? Has thorns and little pink sprouting at the base.see neglected and over grown.

    One might be (wild) purslane. If so, you'll get more alluring cultivars from the GC. Number 6 could well be Geum urbanum (avens), what would explain its multitude.

    There are beautiful varieties of purslane you can find at garden centres;

    wild purslane flowers are tiny and insignificant, the plant is just a nuisance.

    Pinch and sniff; if it's thyme it will be aromatic.

    I think they are all weeds, that’s not Jacobs ladder.

    Cultivar - not cultivator.  A version of a plant bred for its superior performance in appearance, foliage, flowers, flavour or dependability depending on what it is and what the growers are looking for.

    Those all look like weeds to me and the soil looks like it needs some serious beefing up with well -rotted garden compost, bought compost and/or well-rotted garden manure.

    I think that’s some wild rose with the thorns, definitely rose thorns.
