Plant ID please

Have found these in the garden. Are they plants or weeds. Have lots of the last one, so guess they are weeds but wanted to check before I dig them up.

    1. Auricula seedhead?

    2. Pelargonium possibly a type with scented leaves

    3.  Bluebell seedhead?

    4.  More auriculas?

    The pelargonium looks like Royal Oak. If the leaves are sticky, then that is probably what it is.

    No need to apologise, @Gardeninggirl36, we were all beginners once, and we enjoy answering ID questions!  That pink-flowered plant, the pelargonium, looks like the lemon-scented one, I don't know it's name.  Pinch a leaf and sniff your fingers. I have a very similar plant, but paler pink.  I agree with @Dovefromabove about the bluebell, I think it's the Spanish one, Hyacinthoides hispanica, about which controversy rages.  They can be invasive and very hard to get rid of, and get cross-pollinated with the native bluebell, Hyacinthoides non-scripta, and the resulting hybrid is more of a thug than the Spanish.

    I think you may be right @josusa47 ... those leaves do look like Spanish bluebell.
