These have appeared in my garden and I don't know if they are weeds or what, but they look nice to me. Thanks

First one looks a lot like larkspur. They are an annual native an will readily reseed. I have a few growing in my gardens right now, and hope to have lots more next year
The second one I'm not sure about, but it is rather cute.
Edit to add:
Just looked up the second one- it looks to be Heal-all Prunella Vulgaris. It's a non-native flower with a low, creeping habit Blooms May-Sept.

They DO look nice!
Perhaps Delphinium carolinianum (maybe subsp. virescens--syn. Delphinium virescens), Prairie Larkspur:

Those links above & other similar pix at this site:
Prairie Larkspur found on this page:
If not the one above, then one to consider: Consolida ajacis, (Delphinium ajacis, Consolida ambigua) Rocket Larkspur (Doubtful Knight's Spur). Compare your plant/foliage to this illustration, see if it's a match.
