Yesterday I was not only pleased to see that Spring has finally arrived in my little garden, I was also very happy to discover I have a honeysuckle plant. I can’t remember ever planting a honeysuckle, but then there are loads of plants in my garden I have yet to identify, so it isnt a huge surprise.
It also turns out that the local honey bees love this plant. A mini swarm covered the 7 foot honeysuckle from top to toe. Good to know that the bees are already hard at work, and I, without any effort on my part, have already made a start on my garden resolutions, to encourage bees into the garden. This is my kinda horticulture LOL.
The hard work will begin tomorrow. The catalogues have been studied, I have so far resisted the erge to buy every plant I see, and soon I will be taking detailed photographs and making plans for my plot. As daunting as the work is going to be, I am still rather excited that my plans are beginning to take shape.
Here are a couple more shrubs which are beginning to flower. If you have any idea what they are called, would you be so kind as to let me know? Thanks 🙂
