At last I know one: The lower, pinkish one is clover. I’m guessing the one on top is a daisy, but I’m not sure. This time I scanned at a higher resolution, and in the close-up of the daisy, you can see aphids clinging to the stem.
Update: By consensus (see comments), the upper photos are of daisy fleabane.

I believe the top one is daisy fleabane.
Yes, I'm sure it's daisy fleabane, Erigeron annuus.
Today I was at Anthony Marx's sales pitch to Cullman Center Fellows, and was very happy to hear you questioning the purported facts and figures behind the grandiose plan.

Thanks, Maggie and Anne! Daisy fleabane it is.
My favorite book for weed/wildflower identification is: A Field Guide to Wildflowers of Northeastern and North Central North America (1968), by Roger Tory Peterson and Margaret McKenny
Also nice is the Peterson Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants.
