Poison Ivy!


It's Poison Ivy!
It comes in many colors
Beware! It's all bad!
But oh so very beautiful!

You may not be sensitive now...
But someday you will be!
Leaves of three, let them be!

Barak Obama has just been elected. 
concession speech was superb in its healing tone.
Blessings to both of these fine men, just blessings...
And that's as political as I'm gonna get!

  1. I've always wondered why it is so, so pretty, especially in autumn. One of the best things about where I live now is that we don't have any. I am SOOO allergic to it. I never touched it, but it is so pretty and inviting.

  4. Yet another thing that looks so good but is really oh-so-bad! I just LOVE autumn, and your pictures pretty much sum up why.

    And...ego. That's the only thing I can think of that would make ANYONE want to be President :). It's a new era now, and hopefully one that will be all that is expected.

  5. Ah, the temptation of the pretty colors makes it so pretty on the surface, but so evil underneath.

  9. We get poison oak out here in the west -- I've never seen the ivy in person, which is probably a very good thing...
    We have some tall stinging nettles along our riverbanks that are pretty darned nasty...

  13. I'm on prednisone right now (see my P post) and only WISH it were poison ivy...at least I'd know what it is! But alas, we don't know so I'm now on a regimen of prednisone to get rid of it! Gorgeous photos of such poison! lol

  16. I don't just itch! I swell up to enormous size, can't lie down without my throat closing (try sitting up to sleep several nights in a row!), byt fortunately cortisone can make it a bit less awful than in my younger days. Actually what we have here is more apt to be poison oak which has the exact same poison to make one miserable. And it is equally beautiful in autumn! Lovely photos!

  18. Poison ivy really is beautiful.

    My daughter and I are "immune" to it, but my son will wake up with it tomorrow morning just because I've read this post and a picture of poison ivy was, for a period of time, in this house.

  19. I was horribly allergic growing up, but don't think I am now. As in, gone to the emergency room twice kind of allergic.

  20. WoW! I had no earthly idea it came in different colors. It gives a whole new meaning to *Pretty But Don't Touch*, lol.

    As always, your pictures are amazing....

  21. So that is Poison Ivy - it does look very beautiful and innocuous. I can admire from afar.

  22. Tsannie, this is very colourful and beautiful! Good post. Thanks for your visits!

  23. An old pop song came to mind; does that really date me? Poison Ivy by the Coasters - 1959. Looks can be deceiving.

  24. So that's what it looks like! The colours are beautiful, but I'm glad we don't get it here!!!
    Thanks for visiting.

  25. WM is okay and doing really great. She is just very busy and chose to direct her energies elsewhere. I will pass along your message :)

  26. Like Gordon, I got the Coaster's song buzzing in my head as soon as I saw this

    You can look
    but you better not
    touch
    poison ivy

    It is going to take all day to get this out of my head now.
