If it’s invasive and viney, it grows in the woods behind our backyard. And sometimes it wanders into our yard as well. Honeysuckle, English ivy, vinca, and a cute little specimen called Virginia Creeper. Virginia Creeper looks just like poison ivy, except it has five leaves instead of three.
I was doing some weeding the other day when I spotted a plant I assumed was Virginia Creeper. So I pulled it out.
And then I counted the leaves and realized there were only three.
And you know what? Poison ivy really itches!
