Wild Honey-Suckle

I love to go into the woods in spring and find wild honey-suckle. This is a pink honey-suckle that grows on a large bush. There is also a wild yellow honey-suckle that grows on vines but I haven't seen any around our place.

Dot,
Oh, honeysuckle is heavenly...my husband has brought me bouquets of bush honeysuckle...I had a bush that 'passed away'. A friend brought me another bush the other day...hope it lives....we have the yellow vine type....

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my beepless stove.....Betty

Beautiful! I can hardly wait for the trees and shrubs to leaf out here. It's definitely spring, but the branches are still bare.
