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.
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.
