Great pictures, are these plants selfseeded or are they existing landscape/garden plants you're just unfamiliar with?
That shrub in particular looks like something I see planted around here. Unfortunately I don't know the name. I've been able to identify some local shrubs for myself by looking at invasive species lists. Landscape shrubs that selfseed around ghe area quick make these lists.
Mostly I'm just good at google. I won't really be confident that first plant is a monarda until I see the flower. It is just the closest match in my garden.
Those leaves do look like the ones on my legumous shrubs. The branching pattern matches the picture, also. I've never seen one in person, so this is probably more your area than mine.

Thanks everyone. I agree the first shrub like plant looks like something in the pea family. we mostly get black locust but I know it's not that. The leaves are thick and almost fuzzy (almost mullein texture). Locust are thin and smooth. (It's not something I planted). The third pic that's the plant at full maturity. If I remember from last year. It's gone by mid summer. I like that it pops up so I'm hoping to identify.
