Wild Flowering Vines & Bushes
Honeysuckle vines & wild rose bushes grow along the edge of the woods on our property. This time of year they give off strong, yet delecate, sweet scents which add a lovely touch of spring to our yard.
The flower of the wild rose bush doesn't look like a rose. The stems, though, do have the recognizeable thorns. The scent now is almost gone, but, a few weeks ago the sweetness was smelled throughout the yard. I think they smell much sweeter than a regular rose or it might just be because the bush produces so many small flowers.
The honeysuckle vine has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. The scent permeates through the whole yard and I inhale deeply to get the full effect. In my opinion it is one of the most intoxicating scents I have ever smelled.

My passion for fabric, color and beautiful home furnishings led me into the interior design field almost twenty years ago. I like meeting new people and it gives me great satisfaction helping them with their decorating challenges.
I share my home with my husband and mini black poodle, Tally (she's my 5th poodle). I play tennis all year round and like to cook and entertain. My book shelves are filled with a variety of cookbooks and I could spend hours in a kitchen supply store!
