This Honeysuckle shrub, for example. I used to have my own Lonicera purpusii by the back door of our island house, planted in that spot on the advice of the wise plantswoman who sold it to me. A bittersweet joy to recognise it in the Van Dusen gardens.... But the fragrance from these dainty blooms is such a spirit-lifter in February. . .
Hope you enjoyed the garden walk, and I wish you a lovely weekend. If you have a moment to leave a comment, you know those are always appreciated.
