Reading of 1st picture,

周垣氏 - Zhou Yuan-shi (Mrs)
写於関江雲山閣 - Painted atYunshan pavilion in Guanshan
Reading of seal,
周垣  -Zhou Yuan

A less known painter from the end of Qing Dynasty.
I have found works from her on the Wenfang Tianxia
Chinese language auction site.

2nd picture,
Title reads,
秋菊争輝  - Autumn chrysanthtenums contend in splendour
梅白碧山人畫 - Master of Plum White Jade Montains, Picture (Art-name)
計梅仰氏 - Ji Meiyang (Mrs) (name of artist)
作於xxx - Painted at xxx
(I am not sure with the reading of the last 3 characters)
The seals are illegible.

These two pictures depict summer and autumn flowers,
the spring (peach) and winter (plum) are missing -
I think they were originally four in a set.

With regards,

thank you for the translation. really do appreciate it. Is there any way you could help me with my last 2 pieces. One of the is a set of vases. There's writing on the bottom and they seem to be pretty old. The other piece is a set od pictures. No stamps or anything. but the frame seem really nice. Any information on those 2 last pieces would be helpful.
