#2 looks a lot like Virginia Mountain Mint. Does it have a square stem?

I'll check on the square stem. I'm convinced though. I think you nailed it Mitch! Thank you!

#1 is more difficult. Not sure if flowers are in bloom, pre-bloom or post bloom. Also can't clearly make out the leaf arrangement. Otherwise, it looks similar to Pink Thoroughwort, Eupatorium incarnatum.

Yeah Mitch, I had the same question when I saw it. Kind of a "whatzithuh?" I'll keep my eye on it while doing my blackberry rounds and get more pictures. There is a Late-Flowering Thoroughwort here and that may be it. Thanks again for your help! You're the best Mitch!

It certainly resembles Lateflowering thoroughwort and that came to mind, but I didn't think so because it normally blooms in Sept and later.

That would make sense.

Miych, I have an ID on this plant. Wild Quinine/American Feverfew. Thanks again for your help!
 
I wish to win the lottery. I wish for a lovely piece of pie. And I wish for a tiny ad:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
