Am I growing weeds??

I am clearly not well educated in Iowa weeds or flower gardening as you can see.
I planted some seeds next to my down spout and don't remember what kind. And now I have 3 different plants or weeds coming up and I thought maybe someone could help define them by the pictures. Anything would be of help. I'll try and post all 3 or 4 pictures on here if I can. And thanks so much to all of you in advance.

Look like weeds to me. Generally speaking, whatever's growing best for me always makes me suspicious.

A weed is defined as something you dont want, so if you like it I guess its not a weed!

They look like weeds to me. Maybe the green with the white stripe on the left of the first pic might not be. All the rest yes!

So I'm not the only one that is a master of growing beautiful weeds? :-)

I had a neighbor who said "If it's green, it's good". I am living by that motto since I cannot get rid of my weeds.

Maybe the third picture is a ground cover......wild strawberry. Not sure about the others.
