Honeysuckle and a Frog: Findings on the Trail

Honeysuckle flower and sweet nectar.
You gotta remember this. This are honeysuckle flowers. You pull the flower off, punch off the bottom and pull the stamen through the flower. A small drop of sweet nectar emerges and you gobble it up. Sweet as honey.

Found these plants along the Appalachian Trail in Botetourt County today. Brought back a little piece of my kid-hood.

Below is another rarity: a frog. Virginia is almost out of frogs and this guy--look close, he's there--is one of the few remaining. If you're walking in that area, don't step on him. Be easy to do, I'd say.
