The first one looks like tufted vetch, Vicia cracca, which is pretty but a very common and annoying weed, at least in my part of Ontario.



Edited to add picture of crown vetch, which has a more rounded inflorescence than the ID plant. It's not nearly as common where I am as tufted vetch, which gets into everything..
