Honeysuckle Tree

We bought our house 3 years ago this month and we moved in 4th of July weekend 2007.  On the one side of the house there is this gorgeous honeysuckle tree.  I will admit the first year we lived here I had no idea what tree it was?  It barely bloomed that year but we kept it around.  The next summer it bloomed more but not as much as you would think.  Our first fall in the house, I met the owners that lived here for 17 years!  They planted the tree she was the one who told me it was a honeysuckle tree!  The tree mystery was solved! 😉 This past fall I trimmed the tree up and took out all the old dry branches.  When I was done it looked like I killed it!  So this spring, I was really worried it was dead and I would never see the gorgeous orange flowers again!  I was wrong – it came back stronger than ever!  Here a few pictures from a couple of weeks ago.  I guess it just needed some TLC! 🙂 

Happy Friday everyone!!
