This could be a Daisy or a Mum. They are in the same family. Mums usually come out in the Autumn so, I’m going with some form of Daisy. ~Vic

It took me a while to find this one. Even Pl@ntNet had trouble. At first, I thought it was a Coreopsis but, the petals didn’t match. Then, I thought it might be a Cosmos but, the petals still didn’t match. This is a Bidens Trichosperma. I think there has been some classification shuffling but, they are all in the Asteraceae family or Sunflower family. ~Vic

As it turns out, thanks to Pl@ntNet, this is an Iberis Umbellata or, Globe Candytuft. I think it may have already bloomed and the center colors are all that is left. It appears to be the same thing as my previous post.

This looks like a tiny bird nest with eggs. If anyone knows what this is, let me know. ~Vic
