At this time of year I am reminded of my childhood whenever I smell the sweet aroma of flowering Honeysuckle vines. We kids used to stand beside these vines for a long time while we pulled out the center stem to suck off the wonderful taste of the “honey” inside. We could totally strip a large patch of vines in less than an hour. If you have never done this yourself it’s hard to explain the joy we felt. Unfortunately, in the process of working our way through the tangled vines to get at the best flowers, we sometimes exposed ourselves to poison ivy. But, that’s another story.
