a beast among the beauties

It was various shapes and shades of green that attracted this wandering photographer.  The hosta, the ginger, the holly I knew were there, but only as I edited the photo did I recognize the beast lurking in their midst, the poison ivy with its three toothy leaves.  Along with every other plant this summer the PI is also abundant, hanging out along the edges of the paths and, most dangerously, amongst the wild berry patches.  Caution in reaching those large, luscious berries is a requirement of enjoying them this year!


  1. I'll have to be on the look-out for it.

  2. I'm feeling itchy already just seeing it! Beautiful shot of all the green leaves :D
