Your Florida flowers are far different from ours - sorry I can't help with identification. But I do agree these are lovely - fine attention to colors and composition. The 2nd and last look a bit soft on my monitor, but it may just be my eyes!

Can't help with #2 (maybe another mallow of some sort? Mallows have that 5-fold symmetry). I do remember #4, the Railroad Vine - it is an Ipomea, also known as a Beach Morning Glory.

Pretty colors and interesting flowers.

I'm probably wrong. But, the second one looks like some sort of ice plant to me. Or, maybe chickens and hens.
