Hi first time poster but always linger in the background.

Can anyone tell me if these are weeds?

First time I’ve seen this pretty sure it wasn’t around last year 

Never seen this one before and there’s quite a bit this year

pretty sure this is a weed it come up every year just would like to know what it is 

lastly pretty sure this is a poppy please tell me it is and I haven’t let it grow to huge proportions 😬

thank you 😀

    Pictures 1 and 2 -  I don't know what they are, but I pull them out.  Pic 3 could be grass. The last pic is a poppy. Someone else will help!

    1 looks like Geum urbanum, 2 is a buttercup seedling I think, so would remove as @Grannybee says.  Agree with the poppy for 4 - looks like an Opium poppy, so flowers will be 3ft or taller.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thank you for your reply’s that gives me some jobs to do over the weekend 😀 No 3 looks like grass but grows tall keeping the same shape and the leaves are thicker than grass I have so many of them

    No3 is Carex pendula.
    I have green thumbs and no aphids on my roses.

    No 3 looks, in my opinion, like a pendulous sedge ... invasive and best removed!
