Plant identification question — weed, or wait?

Plant identification question — weed, or wait?

Hi! I've been lurking here for a few months now, and I finally have a plant identification question for you! I live in Minnesota, in zone 4A. Something has showed up in my garden this year, and I can't tell whether it's a weed and should be yanked, or if it will maybe flower beautifully if I just wait it out. As you'll see under the cut, the larger of the two plants is nearly knee high and the leaves make it look a little like a marigold. I sure haven't planted any marigolds there... I scattered some daisy seeds and poppy seeds in this general area, and then got sick and let it do whatever it wanted to. What do you think? Weed or flower top view Here's a view of it from above. Weed or flower two Here's the shorter of the plants. Weed or flower? And here's a side view of the taller one. Thanks for any suggestions you can give me!
