Plant or weed?

I have a few plants that I can't tell if they are weeds or flowers.

1. Tall plant

2. Vine-type plant with what looks like flower pods on top

The vine (#2) looks to me like deadly nightshade:

#4 looks like a dogwood. I am not a 'tree person', however, so I can't say for sure. There are some varieties on which the new growth is red.

Asclepia incarnata #1

The first one looks like the Milk weed that is pink called Asclepia incarnata "Cinderella". #2 is a solanum, maybe solanum dulcamara "nightshade". #3 yep, geranium and I agree with Katsura, not sure , does look like a dogwood too. Fun to ID plants, Cheryl
