Summer Weed Week/Wordless Wednesday

A patch of poison ivy (toxicodendron radicans) on the ground

Poison ivy showing new growth (note reddish leaves)

Poison ivy & virginia creeper on tree trunk (note the differences between the 3 leafed vines and the 5 leafed vines)

A weeder’s nighmare–the seedlings, from the left in the photo to the right, are poison ivy, oriental bittersweet, and virginia creeper.  Note how similar the poison ivy and virginia creeper seedlings look when they only have 2 leaves!
