This honeysuckle is just outside the back door and it's perfume is wonderful on a warm summer evening.
We planted this rose to form some shade cover for my favourite spot for sitting in the garden though I've hardly needed it. It has put on amazing growth this year and has dozens of flowers. The buds are almost orange, opening to a strong buttery yellow and then gradually fading away to cream.
It's not such a good year for these in my garden - there were three huge heads last year but only one this year.
This is a much smaller honeysuckle on the other end of the pergola. The best view is from above as all the growth and flowers seem to search for the sun.
I love these tiny pale pink flowers on the black elder. It grows far too big for our garden so we have to cut great chunks out each year. I now find there is a dwarf variety which would have been a better choice.
The clouds are tearing across the sky but there are a few lighter patches and I can actually see a bit of blue. Wishing you all a bit of blue, and have a good weekend.
