Does anyone know what these are?
These first 2 plants grow in the parks in the area, right by the path in little groups.
#3 is a very small, broad-leafed flowering plant.
#1 appears to me to be Epilobium angustifolium, commonly known as fireweed (or maybe great willow herb to you). I'm already pulling it up in my yard this spring. I love it, just not in my gardens!
Here is a link that might be useful: info on fireweed
And #3 looks like Maianthemum dilatatum to me.

Could the second plant be Campanula glomerata?
I'd go for my old favourite Hesperis matronalis for no.2.
