When the morning sun is on the trumpet-vine blossoms, sing
at the kitchen pans: Shout All Over Gods Heaven.
When the rain slants on the potato hills and the sun plays a silver shaft on the last shower, sing to the bush at the backyard fence: Mighty Lak a Rose.
When the icy sleet pounds on the storm windows and the house lifts to a great breath, sing for the outside hills: The Ole Sheep Done Know the Road, the Young Lambs Must Find the Way.
From "Prairie" by Carl Sandburg
Known as Trumpet Vine or Trumpet Creeper, this appealing vine, with trumpet-shaped dark orange-red blooms and attractive foliage, is a popular lanscaping choice. Its flowers are attractive to hummingbirds. It can often be seen at the edges of woods and in fence rows, using aerial roots to climb.
Another name for this plant is Cow-Itch, because some people develop a rash from touching the plant, similar to that caused by Poison Ivy.
