When I step onto my back porch to let Thor in or out, for the next few weeks, I will be treated to the sweet scent of honeysuckle. This may be an exclusively Northeastern bush (I'm not sure), but it's one of the nicest I've ever encountered.
As a child, I discovered (as countless others doubtless did, also) that the honeysuckle flowers contained a wonderful, sweet nectar. So if you were fortunate enough to have or live near a honeysuckle bush, on a hot summer day, it was wonderful to sit beside one and savor its sweet scent while occasionally plucking a flower to consume its few drops of nectar.
In the garden, the Simpson Black Seeded Lettuce grows,
the carrots are taking shape,
and my little guy has determined that the radishes are not ready for harvest.
He also talked his Dad into letting him get another garden gnome.
Happy Garden Tuesday!
