Blue one looks like a morning glory.
Last one, needs closer pic.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

The first one is a bougainvillea, probably "Barbara Karst'.

Welcome! I agree on Bougainvillea and morning glory. Would the last one (assuming the cactus) be a prickly pear, Opuntia.
