2016 is the first year I have been able to do any gardening. I live in southwestern Ohio, USA. I love roses, orchids, toad lilies...everything 😁

My gold flame honeysuckle is a favorite of the pollinators. Bees, wasps, hummingbirds. #wildlifewednesday

I wasn’t aware that goldfinches went after aphids!! This honeysuckle has a lot of aphids on it. Both pop and mom were loading up. The one in the pic is the male. I looked it up and goldfinches

Feed aphids and caterpillars to their babies. They can’t eat seeds. And the young finches still eat bugs.

@Shephes you are correct! There is a reason for everything. All life has a purpose , even the things we don’t like.

I planted this on my mom's trellis last april and it doesn't seem too happy? Does this not transplant well? Barely climbs too. Hummingbirds love it to death though

@kipcott. This one I plant last summer. I have never moved one before. Maybe wait a year and see how it does. It may be adjusting to the move. Is it in a sunny spot? Mine gets lots of sun.
