    Thank you, Ron
    I am not agree with Miner's lettuce, when I google images, the result is a very different plant

    Nadia,
    I agree with Ron that your plant is a miner's lettuce, either Montia parvifolia aka Small-leaved miners lettuce or Claytoni sibirica aka Siberian miner's lettuce, . The common name 'Miner's Lettuce' is applied to at least one other closely related plant - Claytonia perfoliata, which may be the photo you saw. Its upper leaves are fused to form a single disc shaped leaf with the flower stem coming up through the centre.

    Other common names for M. parvifolia are Small-leaved Montia or Streamside Spring-beauty. Claytoni sibirica and perfoliata were previously also classed Montias

    #6 is a clubmoss (Lycopodiaceae), maybe Stag's-horn Clubmoss Lycopodium clavatum.

    Incorrectly; "Running pine" would be a species of Pinus. The correct English name is Stag's-horn Clubmoss.
