Honeysuckle - Lonicera periclymenum

I really wanted to take a picture of this flower but the light levels were so low where i found it it was proving impossible (i never bother taking a tripod with me and have to rely on my steady hands instead). This was the best out of a bad bunch of pictures but i'm still not really satisfied with it. I learnt the other day that you can suck out the nectar in honeysuckle just like in Nasturtiums. I wonder if you could eat the whole honeysuckle flower?

I'm off to Yorkshire for a week so there'll be a break from posting for a week or so I'm afraid.

What's wrong with the photo? Looks OK to me. Who can carry a tripod around all the time, anyway?

Keep up the good work.

I sell real estate and am thinking about adding a fun blog category with local landscaping and flower ideas for enhancing property listings.

Cheers! you should have seen the ones i discarded, they were very blurred indeed. Looking back on this photo i suppose it didn't really turn out too badly. Tripods are far too heavy to carry around.

I would certainly be interested in local landscapes and flowers when thinking about moving to a new place and it would probably add an interesting angle to your site and attract new people. Go for it!

I like the photos you have on your blog, it's interesting seeing a glimpse of life from somewhere so far away.
