Weed or not?

Hi there,
  We have recently moved house, there are green shoots popping up all over the place and not sure if they are weeds or not! Can someone help identify these plants?

    I think the third photo may be of campanula,  not 100% sure though.

    On first glance the 3rd one looks a bit like one of the low growing Campanulas but I'm not sure, but I'm sure some others can help more and no doubt correct me :) .

    If it were it would depend the exact type and on your conditions locally as to whether it is a well behaved clump or nuisance.

    Top picture looks like ox eye daisy
    2nd pic weed, don't let it flower it'll spread everywhere
    Pic 3 campanula 
    Pic 5 cow parsley or similar I think

    4 looks like nigella, self seeds everywhere but very pretty, not a weed.

    Thanks for the help on this. So only picture 2 is a real weed? I recognised some forget-me-nots coming up in the same bed, so would cow parsley be a complementing plant to that possibly?
