Hi, Aimankay!
On the third picture, the growth habit is more like a Rhododendron than an Azalea. The second picture looks like a Sidalcea to me, but that depends on the shape of the leaves, which I'm not seeing very well. The first picture is definitely a goldenrod, like Seaburngirl says.

A rule of thumb though not infallible is that a rhododendron has 10 stamens and an azalea 5.
