As we get into September, the last blooms of the honeysuckle are starting to fade. These flowers have spent the summer feeding butterflies, moths and bees. Now as autumn beckons they will form berries to feed birds.
It is a flower strongly associated with romance, Robert Frost and Shakespeare have both waxed lyrical about it. When in A Midsummer Night’s Dream Puck refers to “luscious woodbine” he is talking about honeysuckle not a brand of cigarette. Woodbine is an alternative name for honeysuckle.
Apparently, despite the romantic associations with honeysuckle; if you dream about honeysuckle it foretells a domestic quarrel. Statistically, that bit of folklore is going to get reinforced aplenty!
