What is the fragrance coming through my open window. It rained during the night, so the plants have had their showers. The morning after the rain definitely stirs the birds and the scent of blossoms.
Mhhh what is that smell? As I followed the scent, I walked towards the fence. What fence? The fence (not visible) serves as a trellis for a beautiful vine loaded with green leaves and blossoms. The leaves appear oval which are green and greenish blue. Ah, It’s the honeysuckle bush hanging on to the fence shouting out fragrances and showcasing its beauty. Did you know the honeysuckle bush can grow 6 to 15 ft, depending upon the location and soil mixtures.
It is loaded with blossoms. I have bushes that are white and peachy/pink/crimson color. Did you know there are over 180 species of honeysuckle. The aroma from the blossoms come from a sweet nectar. When I was young, I recall eating the honey and staying away from the berries which I was told were poisonous.
The blossoms last from spring into summer. Providing a wonderful pit stop for the birds and bees. Plus, the beauty that it brings to the landscape. The blossoms are tubular and airy. I guess, I need to pick one and pinch off the end to taste the honey out of the blossom. Ooh the taste of summer!!
You May want to plant your own Lupines, after reading this story.
There was a real Miss Rumphius who lived in Christmas Cove and secretly planted lupine seeds to adorn Maine’s roadsides and meadows.

The wildflowers thrive in Maine, but they aren’t native to the state. How they got there and spread in such profusion is a mystery explained only by – well, an old lady who was the real Miss Rumphius. Read More
