Can anyone tell me if this a weed or not? If not, what plant is it? Thank you!

The top one looks like a sedum (ice plant), the middle ones are wallflowers and the bottom picture I think are foxgloves.

Top one - not a weed. It's ice plant, Sedum spectabile.

Middle one - do you mean the tall one with yellow buds? It's a wallflower - not a weed. Behind it there are primroses and dandelions. The dandelions are weeds.

Bottom one is a foxglove. It's not a weed if you want it, and is a weed if you don't want it. I have far too many of them, so they come out if I want to plant something else or if they're crowding out wanted plants. That rosette of leaves WILL get bigger.

You're welcome - it's a great gardening day here too. I think we all like the "What's this?" questions - see how quickly they get answered! Keep 'em coming. :-)
