Fragrant honeysuckle

Well, looky looky, our fragrant honeysuckle (Lonicera fragrantissima) in the front yard is blooming! (A front yard location means the deer aren’t eating it.) It’s chilly and gray outside, but I ventured outside long enough to get some photos. I mean, if the bees can handle this gloomy weather, so can I. LOL! Oh, and I also photographed a henbit (Lamium amplexicaule) in bloom. Though it’s nonnative and considered “weedy,” tiny pollinators benefit from the small purple flowers.
