Looks like Virginia Creeper.
Virginia Creeper? Really? Oh my. That creates another plant mystery. The stuff I’ve always called Virginia Creeper is apparently not. Hmmm.
Is Virginia Creeper a provoker of poison-ivy type rashes?
Hah! It is Virginia Creeper which contains oxalate crystals – many people are allergic to it. Sheesh and begorrah. It’s invasive and a real bitch to eradicate. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
Even though it got Sheriff John Brown shot, his orders of “Kill it before it grow” may be the best course of action.
And if Bob Marley had written a song about Harper’s Ferry?
Um. The dogs are intimidated by the cat. I think a goat will really get their goat. (Besides, goats aren’t very choosy in what they devour, right?)
Hunh. I have never known that Virginia Creeper can cause rashes. Amazing. I always thought it was a harmless vine. Maybe that’s what caused some mysterious rashes in the family over the years. And poison ivy has taken all the blame!
I love virginia creeper, but I have a fondness for native vines, even poison ivy. Won’t stop me from trying to eradicate the poison ivy this year. I do have to consider the toddler and manbeast.
