Honeysuckle – One of my Nightmare’s

Yesterday I posted an image of Spring Popping Out along the Valley/Ravine.  This morning I’m posting another bush that’s close to our back door – same plant variety.

It just dawned on me it may be HONEYSUCKLE.  Why do I have a problem with honeysuckle?  I’m very allergic to the powerful scent it puts out in the Spring.  This is the first Spring in our Condo.  I know, to most people it is a wonderful scent.  Now I’ve got that out of the way!  Many of you know I spend most of the end of October till sometime in early May inside due to the outside temperarures.  Most of my images during that period are shot through my windows.

Now, this condition is due to a military service related injury that left my sinuses and surrounding nerves completely out of sync with my brain. (literally)  MOVING ON … So now I’ll spend and additional month or more in the house due to the Honeysuckle scent.  If it sounds like I’m crying, I’m not. Just disgusted.  I am use to it, after all, since I’ve had the problem since 1975 – actually 1965  but that’s a story for another time.  I even wrote a One–Act Play about it.  Just never dawned on me that honeysuckle would be growing right outside my back door.  Thought I’d be outside sooner this year.

NUTS!

How”s your day goin?🤔

View from our back Deck

This is the view we have at the moment.  When the leaves fall we will get a good look at what’s about us.   All the normal critters from rabbits to birds to chipmunks thrive here.  No deer yet.  Soon, we hope.

Purple Iris

These Iris are no longer blooming.  They bloom early and then you don’t see them until the next spring.
