In the sunshine

Pied Pk quiet
Honeysuckle blooms

I heard that it was supposed to be in the 80s in the afternoon, so I headed out early, that is, shortly after 9am.

The park was mighty quiet, just a few trucks and people setting up for an event, I assume over the weekend, maybe beginning tomorrow…and a few hardy joggers and walkers. Otherwise: relatively unpeopled.

My “smeller” is functional again, and I was almost overcome by the scent of these honeysuckle* blooms. I think this is Lonicera japonica.

* And this species has both vines and bines. (Quit autocorrecting!) A bine (not bone) is a type of twining climbing vine. The vastness of my ignorance amazes me daily.
