Very Colorful And Abundant Red-Leafed Poison Ivy Here On Cape Cod

1,629 views

Poison Ivy seems to be one of the leaves that turns a brilliant red in the fall. So pretty…but beware! There is a lot of Poison Ivy here on Cape Cod! Stay on the trails.

Just a fact that you might not know… you can get Poison Ivy in the middle of the winter if you touch the vine, so be careful. Wear gloves and long sleeves if you think there is Poison Ivy there in the summertime.

Another little tidbit… if you¬†touch¬†Poison Ivy, the best thing you can do is wash it with a washcloth. It’s the disturbing of the skin cells that prevents the oils from staying on you. This is more important than just washing it with soap and water.

As the saying goes, “Leaves of three, let it be.”

But… a pretty leaf, don’t you think?
