Something else that got yanked today was the remaining sections of the back fence. A guy came and took it out, and is to return tomorrow to begin building a replacement fence. The feral cats will be so surprised. They are accustomed to being able to walk right out of the yard at the back, and now they'll have to scale a five-foot fence.
Unfortunately my trumpet vine was a casualty of the demolition. It was climbing over one of the surviving sections of the old fence, and the guy had to chop it down to a stump to make room for building the new fence. I hope it grows back. It was one of my favorite plants.
