Two scents compete for the nose in early May: mild, sweet honeysuckle and strong, sinus-killing privet. Here's the honeysuckle, the only one I dare get close enough to for a photo. It's the vine you can eat, or at least pull the bloom apart to get the nectar. Anybody else ever do that as a child? Now, I understand that cats like honeysuckle, because an ingredient in its wood is used in catnip!
