in the forecast? yellow flowers

Around here the daffodil show will begin to capture a lot of attention over the next couple of weeks.....just in time for some warmer weather to kick in.  Amidst the daffodil fever, folks may forget about the humble winter honeysuckle that I profiled over a month ago. Now that it has opened almost all of its blooms the wind can carry its fragrance twenty yards or more. Here is picture I took this morning. Winter honeysuckle (aka 'sweet breath of spring') blooms on new wood. Since this shrub was pruned dramatically last spring, there was a lot of  rank growth last summer and therefore an extra supply of pale yellowish-white flowers this year.
