    The top photo looks like beggar lice and I would call it a weed.
    A weed is a weed in the eye of the beholder so, I hereby declare the bottom picture is not a weed. Looks like some kind of lily. Perhaps the rare Horizontalis!

    Looks like dog bane and bletilla.
    Personally, I wouldn’t call either of them weeds.
    Dogbane attracts butterflies to its blooms, is a host for a tiger moth… And is a native plant… Yay!
    Bletilla is a Japanese terrestrial orchid… For the shade garden.
