Re: Art in Garden talk - now vines

Just eyeballing the soil, it is red - did not have time to dig in the dirt and get a good sense of the conditions, but it was definitely not "black gumbo clay". I will be back at Thanksgiving for sure and will evaluate in depth. May (if I can get a cheap airline ticket) be back sooner.

What's the soil like in Wichita Falls? I know it's zone 7 and runs 10
degrees colder there than in Dallas. Are they dealing w/ black gumbo
clay or something easier?

Speaking of vines (back from escorting my daughter and granddaughter to
Wichita Falls, TX) any one have some ideas for vines and foundation
plants that might do well in that area? They are in quarters at
Sheppard AFB and do not want to have their yard stand out as the worst
in the housing area. (My "plant challenged" offspring asked for my
help!) As is typical in "rental" property, the yard has suffered from
years of neglect.

I have so many gates and fences here it looks like Starlock 13 here.
Long story, but besides the outer fence the last twelve feet also have
another fence. (If it were up to me- it would not exist) Anyways, I did
hang a large sign on that gate, built these fake tree type things for
the trumpet vines to cover- I am still waiting for the vines to grow to
cover them... Everyone says they take over the world, well they may,
just not here :( .....may cash in the whole idea soon.
