Honeysuckle Hedge on Guemes Island



 The scent of one honeysuckle blossom is unbelievable
Oh how good this whole hedge smelled - we drove very slowly past.

That is one honeysuckle hedge JoAnn - never seen anything quite like it. Ours is out in the hedges and there is no smell to compare - even the word is lovely too.

Very pretty photos. I remember the honeysuckle that grew in my grandmothers yard when I was growing up. This photo brings back many memories. I just came from Marlys This and That Almost Wednesday.

Spectacular! I think I might have stopped the car and just sat in the grass next to it, breathing it in. Heaven! Just seeing the photo is a welcome treat.

Thanks for the lovely, photos. I've never seen a hedge of honeysuckle, but I can imagine the incredible fragrance it must produce.

I can just imagine how sweet that honeysuckle fragrance is with a fence laden like that.

Oh my, I can just imagine. I would want to spread out a quilt and just lay there and take it all in!

I have never seen a honeysuckle hedge before! Wish I could grow them! I tried years ago and after a few years it died! Must be too cold here! Have a good weekend!
