No idea .....the last picture they look almost like pesticide granules that stuck to a moist leaf...the others I have no idea. I am assuming it is a scale of some sort but there are only three that I know of and that does not appear to be any of them.

Time to sharpen your blades though

Slime mold. Occurs during wet times. Not a big deal other than visually.

I think part of the problem is all the rain you have been complaining about.
