L...

...is for Lonicera...


...more commonly known as Honeysuckle, two huge plants blooming and filling my garden with its heady scent.  I have no idea what variety they are as they were in the garden when we bought our house.  They were looking a little sorry for themselves as they were being continually nibbled by rabbits, we have fenced them out and now they are both huge.  One sneaked into my photo shared for the letter H, rambling wildly over an arbour.

  3. Great photo and I can almost smell it now, our honeysuckle is quite rude and always seems to flower on the other side of the fence!

  4. I adore the smell and they are so unusual to look at too. We have one but it seems to send out more greenery and very few flowers.

  6. That's a beautiful flower! I've seen something similar here in the park but it doesn't have a strong fragrance.

  9. We have several honeysuckles in our garden and I've noticed that they don't all smell the same. Love the one by our swinging bench. #AlphabetPhoto
