Muscadines and another variety of wild grape (is it fox grape?) are growing here. The tangle is beautiful, the exact kind of place you expect to see migrating warblers and thrushes feeding between flights.

A piece of woods might be a park or a jungle. In a park, the plants are well-behaved (or well-controlled), not touching each other below head level, but in a jungle the plants intermingle and compete and find their own space and relationship to each other. And vines do that better than just about anything.
