Honeysuckle

We have three different types in the garden.

A blousy yellow one that opens quickly and has loose bright petals.

The pink one that is slow to open but smells lovely

And a little white one that I always forget is a honeysuckle until it flowers.

When we walk the dogs in the evenings the hedges are filled with wild honeysuckle and under certain conditions the smell is incredible.

We pass a house with a different variety growing on an archway – this one has the best smell of all. I am tempted to take a cutting.
