The Clubhouse

Saturday afternoon Ellie, Luke and Andrew were at my house, playing outside.  I saw them dragging my short lawn chairs (really made for the beach, but they love to play with them) across the back yard towards the back gate.  Asking where they were going, Ellie responded without looking back, "To the Clubhouse!"  They had declared what used to be our dogs' dogpen, about 3 years ago, "the clubhouse".

Spotting the honeysuckle which grows over the top of it,
I showed them how to get the nectar from a honeysuckle blossom.

They spent a lot of minutes working on that - 
a lot, for 3 restless little ones who can't stay in one spot for long,

Who, reading this, remembers, as a child, trying to get the most nectar that you could from a honeysuckle blossom?
Isn't the scent heavenly?
