These shrubs are plentiful in a raised flower bed alongside a fence I pass each morning on my power walks.

I’ve taken many photos of the blossoms and even featured them a while back with a busy bee I caught working deep inside the blossom.

Because of the vibrant orange colour, it’s been difficult to get good definition on the blossoms, and especially on a sunny day.

Another problem I had was identifying the flowers, because in my image search, the similar image results were never accurate.

For this photo, I did post processing in both the native photos app on my phone and in Snapseed until I was finally satisfied with the definition of the small blossoms.

Someone in our park told me this morning, that these are Cape Honeysuckles. I looked that up in Google images, and sure enough, that’s what they are! It usually always pays to ask a real live person.

“Meanwhile, spring came, and with it the outpourings of Nature. The hills were soon splashed with wild flowers; the grass became an altogether new and richer shade of green; and the air became scented with fresh and surprising smells — of jasmine, honeysuckle, and lavender.”
