mmm I can smell it :)I love honeysuckle, and the vase & tiles are perfect!
Appreciate your lovely comment!
What an interesting honeysuckle - I love the way a small stem can perfume an entire room in the evening.As ever, the difference between US and UK terminology for furniture continues to amuse and interest - your tile commode we would call a washstand. Lovely piece, whatever it's called!
"Washstand" was the word that eluded me all day yesterday!And since the piece is actually English Arts and Crafts, you are dead-on.Thanks for visiting and your helpful comment.....
Hi,so nice to see you again.I too would call it a washstand and i would like to call it mine.Honeysuckle is one of my favorite flowers.Just perfect in that vase.xo Jane
Yesterday, in an all too familiar pre-migraine shutdown, vocabulary was one of the first things to go.You and Rachel (the post above this one) were both correct to replace "commode" with "washstand".Thanks again for writing such a consistently great blog as well as providing this wonderful forum to share and enjoy flowers....Rose
I bet it smells just beautiful. And it looks lovely in your vase as a cut flower. x
Thanks for stopping by.Another unexpected bonus of arranging honeysuckle vines was how pliable they were.Now I see why they are frequently used in basket weaving.
Beautiful! I just love honeysuckle and this one's really something.
It's actually a little hard to control in the garden, when it's time to prune we get out the machete!
Gorgeous--I've never seen them before. Does it smell like honeysuckle on steroids?Did you say lath house? I want to know more...
Yes, when I walked into the room with the washstand this afternoon, it was a little overpowering - just the way I like my fragrance!To see the honeysuckle in its natural environment, scroll down to my blog post on the month's garden tour - it's visible at the far end of our yard.
Wow that is some lovely honeysuckle! And I can only imagine how glorious it smells. Lucky you to have access to such a beauty!
If you were to drop by I could send you home with an armful!
Ooh I love it! Very elegant and must smell divine x
Yes, you're right, the fragrance would make you swoon....
A lovely flower, perfectly arranged.
Your comment means a lot to me, coming from someone with such a poetic sensibility....
Honeysuckle is invasive here, but I can't bear to get rid of it...my walk to the car in the morning is heady!!
I grew up on the East Coast (a long time ago) and remember plucking wild honeysuckle flowers, snapping then pulling out the pistil, and savoring that little droplet of nectar that balanced on the end.Somewhat like a large, clumsy hummingbird...Keep those rabbits cool!
Love the honeysuckle in the little green vase, very pretty!
Thank you for stopping by my place.What a treat to see L.hildebrandiana again! I had one in a former garden. A bit of a thug, but worth it.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
