Todays Flowers:







I am not sure whether these are Wallflowers or Honeysuckle, either way I took these in July of this year back at the old place in Sutherland ( you can see by the leaves that there had been some rain earlier that day).

Oh my yes, you captured them so well! Nice to look at them. Btw, I've just read about poinsettias being harmful to dogs and cats, and many other plants. I've come to read about it because my dog was poisoned and he is under medication right now, toads were the suspects and the vets advised us to eliminate them before they harm my other pets.

Hi Jane,
I think those are new variety of a Honeysuckle...not too sure though. they smell so sweet!

Definitely a Honeysuckle Vine. It is a nice red one.

Sorry to hear about your dog AL, toads can be harmful if they attack them ( cats too)-I wouldn't want to hurt the toads though.

I love the smell of Honeysuckle, thanks everyone for your comments:)

It is very lovely picture of a Honeysuckle flower. Besides the lovely scent Hummingbirds love the flowers too.

Beautiful flower of the Honeysuckle.

Thanks Coffee much appreciated:)

I wish they had hummingbirds anywhere in Scotland but I feel they are for warmer climbs only.

Thanks everyone for your comments:)

A delicate Honeysuckle, it looks to be not so vigorous as the ols fashioned ones, but I am sure it smells just as sweet.
