Next to grass, honeysuckle might be the most difficult weed in my garden. It doesn’t attack my vegetables, but it LOVES my fig tree and muscadine vines. I do like the honeysuckle flowers and have fond memories of drinking the nectar as a kid. In fact we even wrote in the minion’s baby book when she had her first taste of honeysuckle. However, they only bloom for a few weeks out of the year. The rest of the time, I don’t like them.
I did find another use for those creeping vines today. I made a wreath out of them. It hasn’t dried yet, but I don’t foresee any problems.
First I cut some vines and stripped the leaves off of them. Next I wrapped them into wreath shapes. I twisted various vines around each other for the large one, but just one each for the fairy sized ones. I made three little ones for fairy houses and one big one for people houses.
There are some thick ends sticking out of the circles that I will clip once they dry. I left them all flat on our porch and it probably will take a few days, but hopefully they will dry into the shape and be awesome and rustic.
