Advice needed please

Hi all

I wondered if you could help me identify the following:

1. the plant in the middle of the picture and not the forefront

2. this emerging plant

Many thanks in advance

    #2 Dicentra spectabilis (recently renamed to Lamprocapnos spectabilis) aka bleeding heart. Probably the white cultivar 'alba'.

    Agree with Papi Jo about the second ID.  Not positive about the first, but it could be Centaurea montana, perennial cornflower... but quite a lot of common perennials have that leaf shape and habit.

    I agree with @Liriodendron and @Papi Jo
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    The top 1 looks just like my centaurea Montana which are just emerging
