Poisonfuckingivy

I love that I have a nice big yard in which to putter and prune.

I love discovering all of the things previously planted, blown in by the wind, or sown via bird ass.

I love walking barefoot outside (except when I think of ringworm).

But I utterly despise, loathe, fear, hate, wildly shake my fist at Poison Ivy.

It is everywhere.

Believe me, I looked when we first inspected the house – not a hairy perverse vine in sight – but it was winter.  Now it isn’t, and I’ve found it’s as populous as Dandelions – delicate little tendrils that snap when pulled and sink back to maniacally multiply.

I am exceedingly dermatologically allergic to that leaves of three bastard.

Despite the thorough and methodical precautions I took for my first attempt to remove it, it still got me…

And there is so so so much more…

And I just might have to loose a lovely Azalea that it’s gotten way too cozy with and started naming their evil offspring…
