Weeds or plants?


i have the attached plants in my garden and wonder if they are weeds? The second is intertwined with grape hyacinths. 

cheers for any advice

    The first one looks like Golden Rod. I know the second but my mind has gone blank!
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    I too was thinking Solidago for the first one.  I think it's considered a weed in parts of the US where it is invasive but is often grown as a garden plant in the UK.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    The plant in the 2nd picture looks like Maltese Cross, wait until the flowers appear, then it will be easier to name.

    could the second one be soapwort?
