Hi sjp2, are you in the UK? Crab grass (Digitaria) is a tropical plant and might well be killed in a bad winter anyway. There are other grasses that have that spreading appearance. But anyway, you seem to have dealt with it.
Don't think it's Reseda lutea, could it be an Artemisia of some kind?
Could be Quercus rubra, Red Oak, which is a lovely bushy tree that sometimes colours well in autumn. Definitely not Liriodendron, I'm afraid.
I'm pretty sure it is Honesty, I've got lots looking just like that in my garden.
I wonder if the white one is some kind of Phlox? The leaves are very fine, not seen one quite like this before.
I'm so lucky, these were here when I bought the house.
I've seen them go for up to £100, depending on size.
Yes, ivy-leaved speedwell. It's going to seed so get it out now!
The first photo is an umbellifer, as Bob says, but not one of the common wild ones. I think it's Ammi majus, which is sold as an annual garden plant.
It's my understanding that you don't need tetanus boosters if you had a course as a child or several throughout your life. You might be given one if you have an accident, though.
The Natural History Museum has some interesting information about spider bites, it might be worth sending off a specimen to confirm your identification. http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature-online/life/insects-spiders/identification-guides-and-keys/spider-bites/index.html
One of mine is doing the same thing, and looking closely at the leaves I can see that there are signs of mildew. However, there are plenty of leaf buds so I am expecting the plant to make a full recovery. As Dove says, Honeysuckle is generally a survivor!
