Heaven Scent

The wild Honeysuckle is in bloom.
Its sweet scent floating across the meadow..
Intoxicatingly delicious.
 
 
 
 
 Memories of warm days in May, as a child sucking the sweet nectar.
Innocence and childhood going hand in hand.
 
 


So doth the woodbine the sweet honeysuckle
Gently entwist. The female ivy so
Enrings the barky fingers of the elm.
Oh, how I love thee! How I dote on thee!
~ Shakespeare's A Midsummers Night Dream

Have lots of it in the woods. Wouldn't it be wonderful to get enough nectar to make jam from it?

Gorgeous! We used to suck out the nectar, too!

We have some honeysuckle just coming into bloom. I should go out and get overwhelmed. :-)

I love the scent of honeysuckle. Wish I had some growing in my yard. I hope you enjoy yours. Lovely.

The honeysuckle is so pretty growing on the fence. Don't you just love this time of the year!
