We planted a climbing honeysuckle bush at one corner of the arbor at our front porch. We bought it last fall, and even then it was blooming.
Evening Honeysuckle
We took that as a good sign. I dug the hole deep and wide and filled it with the compost I'd been brewing for months. It was one of the first things that bloomed this year.
Yesterday evening I looked out the front windows, and the setting sun fell on the bush turning not only the blossoms, but the foliage into stunning pinks, greens, yellows, and orange.
I shot a few pictures with the iPhone but they were disappointing. When that happens, I go to plan B, which is to pull up one of the wacky photo manipulation apps and see what I can come up with.
This picture was edited in PhotoStudio.
It's not as beautiful as the one painted by the setting sun, but it will do in a pinch.


  1. I really like the effect you got - almost like an illustration. Honeysuckle vines are lovely - they smell so good on a warm evening. You'll really enjoy that on your porch!

  2. I wasn't quite sure about the arbor at first but Jilda kept saying - you'll love it.
    She was right. The jasmine is blooming now along with the honeysuckle. Very nice.

  3. It like looking at the plant through a lava lamp! Surreal!

    Take care
