Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Cow Itch Vine

It's still raining.

This is a trumpet vine. When I was a girl, we called it "cow itch vine." Supposedly one may experience a rash from contact with it. I wouldn't know - I've never touched one. I guess I learned that lesson without having to learn it the hard way - for once.

The flowers on our trumpet vine are fading now, but they were pretty while they bloomed. Tom trims the vine from time to time, and he's never complained of itching. I wonder if some people are allergic to the vine.
Yes, Mimi, I wonder if it's like poison ivy - some people are affected while others are not. I do love their happy red trumpets!
