The honeysuckle is doing its thing

I planted it in the Spring, just after the Brooklyn Botanic Garden plant sale, whenever that was. I drove in a pole for it to climb. I watered it. But other than that I generally left it alone. It bloomed. It started to climb. It wasn't very fragrant. Until now! It's suddenly doing its thing! Maybe it likes the heat wave. Maybe it liked all the rain. But when I walk out of my house, I smell it like crazy, and it's wonderful and makes me think of tropical places, like Puerto Rico, where I went when I was a kid, and it makes me VERY happy.
