Trumpet Vine

Today while I was out running errands,
I noticed dark orange trumpet vine spilling over a fence.
The orange trumpets were so thick, they practically obscured the leaves.

Trumpet vine is always so pretty, and the hummingbirds like it,
but it is an aggressive plant, wrapping itself around every post
and building it can get its tentacles onto.
Dave Beaulieu, at
called it an "orange thug."

But I guess if you can control it, 
it can be a great addition to your garden.
Here is an image from
that shows how beautiful the trumpet vine can be:

And I really love this one from

It could almost make you wish you were a hummingbird.
