oh my gosh, you are awesome!!! so no milkweed in any of these :( rats!!! i'll keep looking!
I, at first, though these were milkweed as well, however, the leaves are too roughly veined and Milkweed is mostly done blooming now.
i put 4 more pics up.... any luck?
I think that may be Common Milkweed; break the stem and see if white sap comes out.
Photos 21, 22, 23 look like mistflower (Conoclinium coelestrium) to me.
Photos 30 & 31 look like partridge pea (Chamaecrista fasciculata).
The vine on the barn could be a clematis, but like blacktulip said, it is too far away.
Photo 42-43 looks like Asclepias viridiflora.
Isn't it fun to find natives?!
1st and 2nd photos are the non-native clematis, C. terniflora.
Yes, 3 and 4 are Eupatorium (called boneset). Always a good butterfly magnet.
I agree that 21-23 are the blue mistflower.
And I think the vine on the barn is probably the same clematis - it is blooming everywhere right now.
39 is goldenrod, yes, hard to tell which species. What part of the state is this in?
1st 2 photos look like native Clematis virginiana, 1 way to distinguish Clematis virginiana from Clematis terniflora is by the leaves. Clematis virginiana has leaves that are jagged and toothed, Clematis terniflora has leaves that have smooth edges-untoothed. Photo 14 looks to be Cassia obtusifolia.
esh_ga, i'm in the dalton area. these pics were taken in the corner of whitfield co, ga and bradley co, tn
Ok it looks like the album has changed now. I don't see the goldenrod picture anymore.
do wild senna leaves close when touched (like mimosas do)?
