Honeysuckle



A big bunch of honeysuckle growing in my yard. It's everywhere. It grows wild on the side of the roads and I drive with my windows down to enjoy the sweet scents! Behind the honeysuckle, is a plant that the name escapes me at the moment. Perhaps someone will know. It begins with a "P" and is a hedge plant. It is also blooming and smells great mixed with the honeysuckle.
Honeysuckle reminds me of my grandparents house. They had alot of honeysuckle and my grandpa was the one to teach me how to pinch off the stem to get to the sweet nectar.
