My husband and I went for a walk yesterday and stopped next to this beautiful patch of nature’s greenery. I make it a habit to look down for unexpected photo opportunities. Perhaps this was one! The sunlight was filtering through the trees…only a light breeze in the air. It looked promising.
However, my eagle eyed husband soon interrupted my concentration…
H: Be Careful. Don’t go near that. He pointed down at the plants.
Me: Why not? (I always ask why)
H: It’s Poison Ivy! See the three leaves!
Me: Are you sure? So many plants have 3 leaves, don’t they? I don’t stop and count.
Me: Whatever. But it’s so pretty. I have to take a photo. I inched closer. My inner 12 year old really wanted to get a macro shot…but then again there’s that itching possibility.
Fortunately my inner adult took charge. Which was a good thing.
I didn’t end up needing that calamine lotion after all.
