Both found in Northern Utah.
The second could be Leonurus cardiaca, Motherwort.
There's also this one that looks quite similar to mouse-ear cress, but the leaves are more like a dandelion's than a mouse-ear's. It's growing everywhere around here.
I'm now thinking that the first one may be a Dicentra of some kind?

Hydrophyllum capitatum? for #1
I think you are probably right, nonmember! Thank you!!!
Agree #1 is Hydrophyllum capitatum because I asked last year about one in my yard. This is a sweet little plant that shows up, makes little puffy flowers, and fades away until the next year. Here's the info I was given on this forum......A native wildflower, generally grows in open woodlands in rich, moist soil. Makes a nice groundcover in semi-shade, but tends to go dormant early, like July/August, especially if the soil gets dry....
Agree on #2 being motherwort. That planted itself through my secondary water system. The leaves are nice looking, but it grows taller, has insignificant flowers, and makes little stickers along the stems that make it hard to pull without gloves on. Big mistake when I let it go to seed the first year. It has been a nuisance ever since. It shows up all over the place even though I've been diligent about pulling it every time I see it. So beware of that one.
Don't know #3.
Thank you, Sandyslopes and floral_uk! I was unsure about the motherwort ID at first, but further googling has me now agreeing with it. So that's two out of the three, not bad.
