    • This is a flower that is pretty at a distance and also up close. I’m intrigued by that green whatever-it-is.

  2. Oh, how very beautiful. I haven’t seen orange honeysuckle before. We have a white and pink variety growing, and would love the orange! I really like the 1st photo with the flower cluster reaching out. 🙂

    • These are pretty good size too and so a vine spreads out and adds a lot of color to an area.

  3. That green thing is interesting. Maybe it is the male plant?

    • I don’t know. This is the first time I’ve noticed it, but it really stands out, doesn’t it!

    • I’ve felt that way too, usually right after I get a new camera.

  7. Honeysuckle here is white flowers,… then eventually red berries. That is a couple of great shots!

    • I’ve seen white ones here too, the domestic ones. My wife just planted one this spring/ These orange ones grow on very long, trailing vines.
