Trumpet Vines and Little Box Turtle

My contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #127.
Here is a trumpet vine fence along the W. and O.D. trail:

Just to the right of the trumpet flowers is this vine, which is similar (but has smooth leaves). I think it is Trumpet honeysuckle:


A little further down the trail near the Luck Stone quarry, there's a yellow trumpet vine:

The quarry:

And here's a little box turtle:

Aww, that's the cutest turtle! I like the trumpet vine but I have heard it is invasive and hard to control once it takes over. I don't think I have seen the smaller one.

Love that turtle! Hummingbirds love trumpet vine, it might be a good location to photograph them.
