That first one looks like common, annual larkspur. They self-seeds pretty well and the bees and butterflies seem to love them.

Hey Mitch. The flowers do look similar to both of those, but the flower spikes seem longer on them then they are on this plant. The round cluster, in the photo, was at the top of the plant and no flowers anywhere else. This one was 1-1.5ft tall. I can attempt better photos this Monday. Thanks for your help Mitch! You're the best!
