As of Cinco de Mayo, the honeysuckle on the southeast corner of the backyard fence is in full bloom and last night when I went out to water the pots on the front porch, honeysuckle perfume  wafted through the night air. It's one of my favorite scents (along with lilacs and roses) and I only wish the honeysuckle bloomed longer!
This is the pot the honeysuckle was in the first summer we bought it. We planted it in the ground after that first summer 2006, and now in its 7th summer it has wonderfully taken over the corner. We wouldn't mind if it covered the whole fence on that side!

I also love the smell of honey suckle. If I can't get the passion fruit to grow on my back fence, honey suckle might be the next one I try.
