I was very surprized to find a few blooms on a Coral Honeysuckle, Lonicera sempervirens. These vines are everywhere, but this one close to the house is the only one in bloom right now. Since we didn't move in until late September, we missed the peak blooming of these vines earlier in the summer. I'm looking forward to seeing how many of these vines put out blooms.
