Plant ID please

Hello I had a raised bed of wildflowers last year, some of which have self seeded. Can anyone give me an ID on these 2 so I can work out if they're worth keeping please? 

Thanks all

    Hi, the first one looks like musk mallow - we have lots in our garden and it has lovely pale pink flowers over a long period. Not sure about the second pic!

    The 2nd looks like Rocket. It does seed very readily. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    @Beefley I've googled the name and yes, that was in there last year, thanks!!

    @Fairygirl it does look like rocket doesn't it, but 99% sure it isn't as I've got no idea how rocket would have got in there (unless there were some rogue seeds in the wildflower seeds i put in). I've got a pic of the pack of seeds from last year, so will hunt it out to see if it had a list of the seeds on the back!

    Annual chrysanthemum?

    In the top picture, there's a geranium type plant. It has seeded all over my garden this year so I decided it must be a weed. I hoiked them all out the other day.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    @fidgetbones I think you could be right! Found a pic of the foliage on Google and it looks like the right stuff

    I think you have some nigella seedlings too, the ferny ones top right first photo.  The big leaf bottom of second photo looks like borage. Possibly some sort of poppy too.
