Help please to identify these 2 plants

Hello, these two plants have mysteriously appeared in our garden.   Never seen them before.  Can anyone help to identify them?  I hope they are not weeds although we sowed some wildflower seeds bought last autumn.  Thank you.

    The bottom one would have come from your wild flower seeds Silene latifolia, White Campion.
    i don’t know the 1st one.

    The 2nd one is White Campion.
  • Thank you both for your quick reply.  Seems to have a few White Campion growing all over.  So glad it's not a weed.

    You may like to not let too many self seed, it could take over, when the seed heads pop they are full of tiny seeds.  Just pinch the flowers off when they go droopy.

    Surely a weed is a wildflower, or should that be surely a wildflower is a weed. Either way , enjoy them!
