Can anybody identify these plants and weeds?

I photographed these plants and weeds in northern England in July this year. The site is just metres from the sea. All plants were growing from the pavement next to a busy road.

 

There are 13 photographs, which can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6e9r1nkjh9p5tu2/AADHfLKgIfUlYld-fq27LxPxa

 

I've had a shot at identifying them, and this is what I've come up with:

 

1 - ???

2 - Yorkshire fog???

3 - Sow thistle???

4 - ???

5 - ragwort???

6 - dandelion???

7 - ???

8 - dandelion???

9 - ???

10 - ???

11 - ???

12 - ???

13 - ???

 

Can anyone confirm my identifications and identify the other plants?

    I am no expert, so could be wrong.....

     

    3 is a dandelion too I think. If you remember that dente de lion, where the name come from, means tooth of lion, from the shape along the edges of the leaves, that will help you recognise them in future.

     

    6 is a dandelion too and 8

     

    10 is ground ivy I think. Really pretty little plant but will grow in every nook and cranny and takes over if you let it. Can apparently undermine buildings.

     

    11 might be one of the willowherbs, possibly great willowherb, also known as hairy willowherb?

    12 I think is chickweed

     

    Only a few more to go.
