It wouldn't be summer if I wasn't worrying that every plant, vine and leaf that I see is in fact not an innocent piece of flora, but in fact, the dreaded Poison Ivy.
So you can imagine my happiness when recently I saw this graphic:
Not only are the photos incredibly helpful to know what to avoid, but I love the rhymes like "Hairy vine, no friend of mine." I didn't even know that poison ivy can appear as a hairy vine!
So this summer, I will be consulting this Poison Ivy Identification graphic often, while hoping for the best.
I was not compensated for this post and I'm sorry not to have cited the photo properly, I can't remember where/how/or from whom I got it.
