I saw rampant in San Antonio, profuse vines run amuck with the intense summer rains we’ve had this summer. The coralita vine had grown in an intense reckless way, having found just the right conditions to cover everything in its path.
I’d remembered coralita vine at my host’s back door and it was there in profusion. This year, it also spread riotously, covering the side of the house, becoming shade and a barrier from the western sun.

And then, on a walk through the neighborhood, I discovered vines prolific enough to bury whole houses, stretch over the tops of palm trees and hang from roofs. I loved every flowerlet of this recalitrant vine I found in San Antonio.
