Honeysuckle Song

“Diggin’ Up That Honeysuckle” by Gloria Attoun

Our friend and local artist Gloria Attoun has performed at the Peers Store, with her next performance coming up in September. Be sure to catch her live on the porch at the Peers Store!

This song was inspired by the abundance of honeysuckle that has grown on Gloria Attoun’s own property. Bush honeysuckle is invasive and destructive, posing a serious threat to our Missouri countryside and local landowners like Gloria.
