Being the newbie that I am, I bought a couple of "wildflower mixes" and now I have no idea what are weeds and what are flowers, what to leave and what to pull up. Can you help me identify what these are?

The flowers listed on the mixes are:
cornflower centaurea
siberian wallflower
lance-leaved coreopsis
purple coneflower
bird's eye
blue flax
sweet alyssum
spurred snapdragon
godetia clarkis
california poppy
indian blanket
shirley poppy
black-eyed susan
white yarrow
shasta daisy
rocket larkspur
plains coreopsis
evening primrose
chinese forget-me-not
annual gypsophila

sorry for the sideways pictures, i have no idea why they uploaded that way... i couldn't fix it.

The first picture is blanket flower or plains correopsis. It's hard to say which as their leaves are similar. The second is definately a poppy and I'm not sure about the last. Unless the plant has a distinctive leaf like poppy it is often hard to tell before they bloom

RE: what are these seedling?

I loved this post...I'm dabbling in seeds myself and I'm scared to death to pull weeds! I can't tell which is which! ;)

RE: what are these seedling?

The 2nd picture is definitely California poppy. They are annuals except in warm climates, but they reseed abundantly every year for me.
