Sorry... I looked at the pic really quick and didn't notice them. Now that I do notice them though I'm not sure it's Corydalis anymore, the flowers don't look right to me.

Leaves don't look the same as the first pic, in the link the lutea, a little different.

I'm going out on a limb here and say it looks like the wildish Honeysuckles I have in the back yard. Edited to say the leaves look more like goose berry.

When someone says the right name I'll know what it is, cause theytold me once what it is, both those aren't correct though.

Someone just id'd it as clove current, when I looked it up, that's exactly what it is. it's so fragrant. I just love it.

I also have the same plant. It was from my Mother. Ive always known it as Yellow flowering Current. It blossoms in early spring here, N.W. Pa. The fruit is,almost black and loved by birds.Such a great fragrant!

Are the berries edible? cause there is a flowering current that doesn't fruit

I've seen a few sites that do say the fruit from clove currant is edible. As far as flowering currants, they can have fruit too, but it doesn't taste good to humans so we enjoy them primarily for the flowers. Ribes sanguineum is a popular flowering currant out here--I'm not sure if that's the same flowering currant that you'd have in Alabama or not. I have to say I've never seen fruit on mine, I don't know if it's because they're young or if it's because they're small and the birds get them before I notice them. But I do know they can make fruit.

All Ribes fruit are edible; some are not very nice (e.g. R. sanguineum is tasteless and boring), and some others are very sharp, but none is poisonous.
