    • Thanks, Seonaid. Although they don’t look like anything special when you walk by one of the bushes, a close inspection reveals beautiful, exotic blooms. They don’t belong in the Midwest, but here they are, sweet and alluring. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Eliza.

      I love your comments – anthers, yes!

      The forest was perfumed with honeysuckle when Stella and I took this walk. Even though the flowers themselves are indistinct (unless you’ve got a macro lens!), their presence was everywhere because of their scent.

      Another brief, fleeting gift from nature, easily missed if one isn’t looking.

      • My land is full of bush honeysuckle (another Asian invasive that is overrunning the place) but the scent right now is downright heavenly. The bees love them and the birds devour the fruit, so it isn’t all bad. Cornell says fruit-eating birds are adapting to them, so it is what it is. πŸ™‚
