I, at first, though these were milkweed as well, however, the leaves are too roughly veined and Milkweed is mostly done blooming now.

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.

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)?
