Honeysuckle Still Blooming in August

After a quick rain shower earlier I went out to check the blooms in the garden. The Japanese honeysuckle is still blooming. This flower started out as a small vine on the fence and has now grown into a bush. I love the colorful blooms and the hummingbirds enjoy the nectar as well. The smell takes me back to my childhood. Nature offers so much.

@paigea They stay until around October most years, depending on the weather.

Do you ever pull the centers out of the honeysuckle and suck on the nectar inside? I used to do that when I was a kid.

@CarolDM Why should the birds get all that sweet nectar to themselves?

I have never seen that color honeysuckle before it is beautiful. Mine were always the white variety.

I'm not familiar with honeysuckle and wouldn't recognize it. When does it normally quit growing or blooming there? I'm guessing the change in climate will produce changes for all our blooms. Maybe from now on if the summers continue as they were this year.

The end of summer, or late September, depends on the weather.
