Honeysuckle - Ah the Smell......
While in Virginia I came across the Smell of Honeysuckle. That smell is one that you do not forget. Ones memories are triggered and off to memory-ville goes the thoughts. As a child, my Grandmother had it in her yard. I would pick it and take it in the house. The smell reminded me of that time. The search was on. We were at the beach...walking back on a boardwalk...stopping to use the outhouse. I was waiting for everyone to return...When the wind blew.... the nose got its' first whiff. I started to look around and there in the thick was a bounty of Honeysuckle. Camera in hand and the shutter clicking and zooming in to get that shot to take back the memory of that smell. Well, no Smell-o-vision available in this time period. Maybe soon, until then you can light a Honeysuckle candle, spray some honeysuckle in the air or rub on honeysuckle lotion and view these photos.
