Golden Honeysuckle 1



Petals fall with icy rain

Discarded like old news

Maybe now it’s winter

There’s nothing left to lose


Dancing wildly in the wind

You shed your golden crown

Then with great aplomb you go

And grow another gown


Golden Honeysuckle 2

This golden honeysuckle was one of three plants I bought recently to brighten up a new wall. It seems to be a different variety to my usual honeysuckle though, as it is growing straight up rather than bushing out.

The first thing it did once I’d planted it was shed its lovely bright flowers.

It was fine though, as it instantly began producing more.

      Thank you 🙂
      I read that there are 186 varieties of honeysuckle. The UK and American types seem to be different to what I find here. And mine has no scent – that I can detect anyway!

      Thank you so much 😀
      Yes, it seems many people do do that, but I tend to hang on to my old friends and find new friends hard to come by – they are all so busy!
