Forgot to mention the honeysuckle in my last posting. Georgie planted it at the base of the apple tree a few years back. Seems to be doing rather well. Somewhat surprising, considering I've done nothing to encourage its growth. It's now about twenty feet up that tree and in full flower. Took a couple of snaps last night at sunset. Unfortunately, the honeysuckle was mostly in shadow. Still looks impressive though. But the best thing is the scent. Absolutely gorgeous. Especially when combined with the smell of apples. Shame it doesn't come across in photos.
