I should have known. Really. I should have. In that particular garden especially. I know it's there. But, being pig headed and stubborn, I didn't wear long sleeves or gloves.
So now I am paying the price - the worst case of poison ivy I've ever had! It's on both arms, neck, face, lips, and now, even a little on my belly.
If you see that ivy, back away slowly, put down the garden tools, head to the patio and grab a beer. It's much less itchy!
