honeysuckle heaven…

It’s a drizzly grey morning here on the Wet Coast of BC. and I was so drowsy that I took a sloshing cup of coffee in the car with me while I dropped the kids at school. When I got back home, I was muttering to myself about the dreary weather as I snuck toward the back of my house (I was wearing my pink pajama bottoms under my coat and didn’t want ANYONE to see me…that’s the way I roll). As I walked through the garden gate, an amazing thing happened. A blanket of the most exquisite perfume enveloped me and made me stop in my tracks. Now I don’t know if it’s the rain that intensified the smell, but my honeysuckle vine’s scent was absolutely heavenly, and I stood there for a couple of minutes just drinking in the pure pleasure of that experience. Thank you, rain!!!!

  1. Well aren’t you lucky. Honeysuckle did not work in our back yard. It rotted. How do you do it? Looks beautiful. You’ve painted a lovely picture of yourself, in pj’s, sipping coffee, drinking in the beauty of the honeysuckle đŸ˜‰

    • Thanks, Janis. I went to a local church garden sale about 10 years ago, picked up a tiny little honeysuckle plant, stuck it in the ground et voila! I take no credit for any of it. It’s probably because it’s in a dry patch of earth. I did water it a lot every summer just to make sure it got a good start. Chalk it up to pure luck!
