In the very back corner of my yard, there is a bush with these beautiful white flowers on them. They come and go very fast though. Every year, I wanted to spend more time investigating these flowers, but the rainy season didn't permit that to happen.
When my neighbor saw that the kids were playing and touching this bush, she suggested them to get their hands washed thoroughly in the bathroom sink with soap, thinking that they might get itchy.
For some reasons, unknown to me, I don't often touch, or smell my objects when I'm taking pictures! I always wondered about the feel and smell of a certain flowers when it was too late. So when my neighbor mentioned the irritation she had with these flowers, I was kind of shock.
I look up honeysuckle flowers, and I'm pretty sure that these flowers are honeysuckles! There are so many different varieties of honeysuckles in all sorts of colors. Some are very fancy and didn't look anything like these flowers.
The bush is quite large as each year went by. I have trimmed some branches to keep it neat in the yard, but it grows back quite strong and fiercely. If you are curious to know if I've touched them, then the answer is no. Honestly now, do you think I want to risk getting itchy?
