    Nice dinosaur.

    Could it be Trachelospermum? (Confederate or Star Jasmine)

    Silver Lace vine? It is a voracious grower and has some fragrance. Polygonum Auberti.

    How cute!

    There’s a guerrilla topiary in Alameda, Calif., that I just love. A very huggable pup with a street sign for a backbone. Photo here:
