04.06.07 ITS BACK

Poison ivy that is. Beautiful glossy red leaves spiraling out of the leaf litter or sprouting out of the massive vines hanging from the trees by their hairy tendrils. The beauty of the spring leaves is surpassed in the fall by a blazing crimson. One early American naturalist suggested the plant as an ornamental. (He must have had someone else to do the actual digging and pruning for him!)
