The Gardener

Clearly this meadow has an excellent landscaper.

I would've waded in for a closer shot, but I am already covered in poison ivy from weeding our stupid yard.

Gardening is dangerous.

But the views can be nice.

I am off to douse myself again in Tecnu Poison Ivy relief, apply bandaids to the affected areas (hand, neckage, who knows where else) and pray that this scourge stops spreading.

And try to remember: leaves of three, let it be.

Poor you with the poison ivy! I've never had and I never want it. Once I pulled out a bunch of stinging nettle and was swollen like a balloon on my arms. Not fun! ~ Maureen

That's awful! I hope you heal soon! I don't think I've ever gotten poison ivy, but I did get poison oak once. not fun!
