« from meg in tennessee: honeysuckle »

Small orange and yellow honey suckles decorate my fence. I love the sweet taste and smell of the nectar. I enjoy walking the fence line watching the honeysuckles glow in the evening light. My time alone with nature is peaceful and it makes me happy.

Oh, I have planted honeysuckles for the sole purpose of letting the girls do this. It's the first edible harvest in the spring (besides dandelion dreens) and they drink it up like eager little hummingbirds. :)
