Day Six 27 November 2020
My garden is too exposed for climbers and shrubs, but our native honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) is more of a scrambler than a climber. Tucked in a sheltered corner it rambles and roams through the rocks and driftwood, and meanders along the wall. Each year it is severely pruned by the autumn gales, but reappears the following spring to fill the garden with a heady scent that is more reminiscent of an English country garden, than a croft garden on a windy Scottish island. Warm, sunny afternoons, fragrant with honeysuckle – “À la Recherche du Temps Perdu”!
Cathy’s Week Of Flowers is drawing to a close, but if you visit the Words and Herbs website you can enjoy the photographs of flowers posted by gardeners who accepted the challenge to spread a little happiness.
