Hello. This plant came up in the spring and I am confused by it. We had planted a butterfly bush last year in approximately the same spot this one is growing, but it doesn't look like the plant that was there. Can anyone tell me what it is? No flowers on it yet, and no buds, but it looks like it should be there.
Also, the last picture is another plant that has a few growing in the bird garden but I have no idea what that is either. My plant ID apps are failing me right now.
Thanks for the help!
First plant:

And the second plant (not a dill):
