HoneySuckle for Try Something New Thursday

We visited some of my sweet family this last Sunday.  We got to meet their newest baby and my girls had a blast playing with their three other cousins.  We spent some of the time in the backyard.  And the cousins showed my girls the honeysuckle bush.  They introduced them to finding a blossom, pulling out the center and tasting the nectar.  I may have grown up on a farm, but I had never heard of such a thing.  I was so bummed not to have my camera.  Then my hubby revealed, we have a honeysuckle bush…so the girls and I went on an adventure hunting honeysuckle, and I was prepared this time!

  1. I'm so glad you got pictures the second time! I love the smell of honeysuckle from my childhood, and remember sucking the nectar out as well. My girls love to do that now 🙂

  2. Fond memories of my childhood come to mind just with the smell of the honeysuckle bush in my backyard. Warm days filled with just right humidity to make the scent pierce the day. The bees buzzing busily and silently on a mission to get what we were in search of too. The sweetness of the honeysuckle.

    Thank you for reminding me of that. I can still feel as if I was there again, a little child, enjoying honeysuckle. Your girls are beautiful and I love the pics!

  3. Those pics are pretty cool. And I realized I have never even seen your backyard let alone been in it. LOL
