Maybe some types of Asparagus ferns, the first one looks similar to a fox tail fern?

Not a true fern. All parts of "Asparagus ferns" are supposedly poisonous. In central Texas they are an invasive pest! I set a hanging basket in a garden bed in my front yard years ago. The berries dropped and sprouted all over the bed and in the grass. It took years to kill it out of the grass. I still find little ones in the flower bed.

Sandi, I'm finding them everywhere! They are invasive for sure. They have taken over one bed and smothering other plants. Both of these are planted together so I will take them out...and replace with flowering plants. Don't really care for them.

Be careful and wear heavy gloves. They have lots of thorns.

The second one appears to be "Sprengeri." At least, it looks a lot like the one I have.
Asparagus Fern (Asparagus densiflorus 'Sprengeri')
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
