Years ago I planted two honeysuckle vines against the trellis hiding our propane tank, and a volunteer butterfly bush joined them. When the plants bloom I take in deep breaths on my way to the coop or to shop/shed as I love their fragrance.
They were getting well overgrown though and this was the year to sacrifice the blooms to give them a new lease on life. Several pickup truck loads later the plants look much different but I saw that it only took two days for new growth to pop out of old vines.
Meanwhile we are enjoying Spring-like weather whereas "Back East" is still snowed in. Here is the picture of my favorite tree on our property: the apricot. It has gorgeous blooms, has a sweet fragrance and lovely bark and produces delicious fruit. Hopefully there will be no more serious freezes so we will be able to enjoy the hard work the bees are doing right now.
