My life is anything but normal. Then who's is. To get through this life I try to see the funny side of things. This is not a political commentary. My cardiologist says I need to avoid stress. Beside dealing with the government has taught me to curse like a sailor, and I'm trying to clean up my act. Oh if your trying to practice for the spelling bee, don't count on my help, I'm a horrible speller. THANK GOD for spell check. Now, if I would remember to use it.
Today is one of my favorite native flowers ... "Coral Honeysuckle" Lonicera sempervirens. This is an east Texas native. It lives along the edge of the woodlands, streams and fence rows. The more common yellow honeysuckle is actually a transplant from Japan and considered a noxious weed in Texas. This Texas lady has very nice manners and doesn't crowd you out. The flowers bloom from April to June.
