The photo got smaller when I clicked it. Thumbs down
The first photo looks like clover - two varieties.

I agree and the second photo looks like wild radish, or something related. They are rampant in So. Cal. hills.

I agree, #1 looks like Trifolium (Clover) https://garden.org/plants/sear...

Not sure what the pretty flowers are in photo #2.

If you can give a general idea of where in the world these were growing, that would narrow down a more exact ID.

I think the first one is Crimson clover, Trifolium incarnatum and the second one Cuckoo flower, Cardamine pratensis

Both growing on farmland, North Norfolk, UK

Thumbs up I did look at a few photos of Cardamine and though it looked a lot like it but I couldn't find an exact match and with my eyesight I wasn't sure.

Here's the database links for both plants:
Crimson Clover (Trifolium incarnatum)
Cuckoo flower (Cardamine pratensis)
