The honeysuckle vine is also in full bloom. I love their looks and I love their smell even more. The aroma fills the air in the back yard. As kids, we used to pinch out the back of the blossoms and suck the sweet nectar. Unfortunately, this is the extremely invasive Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) that will cover anything it grows on in a couple of years. My routine is to enjoy them in the spring and then spend the summer tearing them out. I’m not terribly diligent in my destruction, so there’s always a few vines that come back every year.
