is there anything in here that isn't a weed?

I just came back home from a long weekdend and one of the flower beds has gone wild...At the beggining of spring I did plant some bee bomb or seed balls (or something similar I got as a present) and last autumn some bulbs.
I am aware that there is a hellebore, lilies of the valley and wheat or other cereal growing around (I'm  guessing from my neighbours bird feeder).
Any ideas what else is there?
I kind of like how it looks but I'm aware its starting to look a bit unkempt... other than the nettle, anything else I should get rid of tomorrow?

On the second photo, any what is growing behing the cosmos?

Thanks
Sara

    Possibly. Get the willowherb out first so that we can see better. Its the one with the small pik flowers and fluffy seed heads.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    The spiky pink one is linaria purpurea, pink type. That might have been in your bee bomb.
