I've attached two photos of the flowers. If you can't see the images, they're pinkish and yellow bell-shaped flowers growing in clusters of the branches of a tall (about three feet I guess?) plant.
I found and photographed these flowers last summer. They were growing in my yard, near the back fence and in front of my shed.
I've lived in this house for a long time, and I spend a lot of time outside, so I wonder why I've never seen them before, haha.
If it helps to identify them, I live in southwestern Kentucky, near the woods. I also live very close to several lakes, ponds and creeks.
If you can help me figure out what these flowers are called, I would really appreciate it a lot!! I've recently become an adult, and I would like to be able to grow some of my own when I move out, if possible.

columbine
They're quite prolific so it's possible you didn't see them because they weren't there.

Native columbine. They have the smaller cups and the orange color. The basal leaves look a little like clover. This plant is a perennial which means it comes back every year. After the flowering the plant will set seeds that you can collect and sprinkle around to make more plants.

may be regional variation in terms of naming but lots of sources use the names interchangeably.

it's funny how the names get used.

In Colorado, this is a columbine

Honeysuckle comes in different colors. White, yellow, orangey, pinky.

When I was a child, we'd suck on them. They're sweet.
