When D told me he wanted to paint the gate last year I had to tell him "After it has flowered"
I said those very same words a few years ago when he said we should remove the cross vine, Bignonia capreolata, from the greenhouse roof.
At the same time I am removing this vine from the gate I will be removing it from the greenhouse roof.
And from the Yaupon holly growing next to the gate. This is one big vine but it can be held in check.
