Can anyone help me identify some of these plants growing in my yard?? They're spreading and some look like shrubs, others like weeds. Thank you!

Yes, Lonicera

That's what I was thinking too but my husband thinks it's weeds. I had no idea it could spread so much!

Then, perhaps both you and husband are correct, Bush honeysuckle such as Lonicera maackii, Lonicera tatarica, may be there are other, are known as invasive and noxious weed. in my part of the world L japonica is.

Agreed. It may be honeysuckle but it looks as attractive as a weed!

I agree, and it's might be Amur Honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) which is considered highly invasive in some areas, including Missouri.
