The first one may be pepperomia, {the pic is too small for my old eyes to see}
The last ones flower looks like english daisy but the foliage is all wrong.

thanks, wrennie...

those pics showed the right size in post preview and then posted HUGE, so i edited the pics on photobucket and redid the links to them...STILL were huge after i submitted the edited post!

now they're small...and one is a different size than the others...very odd.

let's try this again...

now, that pic looks like it's the right size...

i agree it's a pepperomia...i don't know which one tho. it's similar to 'ripple' it's not that one tho.

I believe the last one may be an English daisy...bellis perennis?

wrennie mentioned that, too. said the flowers were similar and that the leaves weren't right.

i just googled it and it's not that one. the flower is close - not quite the same and the leaves are definitely different. thanks, tho!

still wondering about the pepperomia...

the watermelon one has stripes for variegation - this one has blotches/splashes.

the other one i have is ripple, not krinkle. here's a pic of the two of them together. thanks!!

The first one looks like Cyclamen to me. Try and Google it.
