    I'll be going over to find my neighbor to find out, but was wondering if anyone can identify these plants. My neighbor sent them home with my son when he brought her some eggs. The second and fourth picture are of the same thing and it is as soft as velvet. The first one is clover (I think.)

    Medicinal use of Common Cockscomb:
    The flower and seed is astringent, haemostatic, ophthalmic, parasiticide and poultice. It is used in the treatment of bloody stool, haemorrhoid bleeding, uterine bleeding, leucorrhoea and diarrhoea. As a parasiticide it is very effective against Trichomonas, a 20% extract can cause the Trichomonas to disappear in 15 minutes. The seed is hypotensive and ophthalmic. It is used in the treatment of bloodshot eyes, blurring of vision, cataracts and hypertension, but should not be used by people with glaucoma because it dilates the pupils. The seed also has an antibacterial action, inhibiting the growth of Pseudomonas.
