Wild Honeysuckle starting to bloom

Wild Honeysuckle is starting to bloom,

Spring is my favorite time of year not only because it ends the cold that last so long here in Nebraska, but it also means the air will be filled with lovely scents.

Shortly after the wild plum blossoms are done. the honeysuckle blossoms start to bloom. Their honey-sweet scent brings hummingbirds and bees to enjoy the blossoms.

The flowers are used medicinally by making a syrup to treat coughs. mucus and asthma. They are also used in making perfume.  They sure do perfume the air in spring!
