What are these please?

In spring I planted some Azalea and other shrubs.

These things pictured below have sprung up all around the azaleas, at first I presume the Azalea had spread out but it seems too fast and they now look different.

Are these weeds? Do i need to get rid of them? thanks

Euphorbia?

Yes, they are likely to just be weeds.

My wife the herbalist, guesses they may be oregano or marjoram. It's a weed if you don't like it there...rouge it out.
