Ok, here are some more! Again, all from Central Texas.

This looks like false ragweed to me, but the leaves are off (I think).

if you would post only one plant per thread please it would be better. Also a photo of the entire plant. The shadows make it difficult to see the detail; can you take the photos when the shadows are not so severe and get close-ups of the leaves for each plant in question. More detailed photos; less fingers and hands. Thank You!

Thank you, I'll keep that in mind for next time. These plants have already been pressed and dried though, so this is all I have for these.

The flowers made me think Gypsophila but the foliage made me wonder about Desmodiums. There is a forum just for plant ID, if you have other mystery plants! Good luck!

I'm assuming that the bottom three photos belong to the same plant? It reminds me of the tall white or yellow clover that used to grow in our orchard. I remember riding on the wagon that Dad's Ford Ferguson tractor pulled and I would delight in pulling these long seed strands that would be on plants about 3 or 4 feet tall. They felt so nice, like tiny miniature nuggets, that I would fling back into the apple orchard.
I'd love to know the name of them, too. I tip my hat to you.

If you are unable to decide from the responses here, there's also a section just for trying to ID mystery plants:

The tall yellow sweet clover is named Meliltus oficinalis.

The white sweet clover is named White Sweetclover (Melilotus albus).

Both are excellent for honeybees!

Hope this helps. Thumbs up

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity, Greene. It's so satisfying to be given the answer! I went to the database and looked it up, and sure enough, Melilotus officinalis was the very plant! Hurray!
It is so nice to run into my friend, the Angel Angel again!
All the very best to you. Thumbs up
