More wildflower/weed IDs

A couple more strange things growing in my wildflower area. Any ideas what they are...?

    First one looks a bit like a cornflower
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    The first one was ringing a bell and I think B3 may be right.  The second looks a bit chewed but may be Honesty (Lunaria annua.)

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Ah yes, I think you’re right about the first one - thank you! I would love the second photo to be Honesty but I rather suspect that it’s something else, although I’m not sure what! A squash of some sort perhaps? - although I would have thought I’d see some tendrils by now. Here’s another one that’s sprung up in a different part of the garden with even bigger leaves...

    Another possibility for the second photo, maybe some sort of Campanula.

    The last one looks suspiciously like the wild mustard I just ID'd in my patch. If you give the leaves a rub the smell would be a giveaway if so.

    I did wonder if it’s wild or garlic mustard when I saw your post but I’ve rubbed and crushed the leaves and... nothing. I guess I’ll just wait and see. The leaves are bigger than my hands. Thanks for the suggestions - I’ll report back...
