Lots of us love to garden and spring and summer are when we get to bask in the beauty that comes from all our efforts. I have some small beds with flowering shrubs and blooming bulbs that make me very happy. I also have a much wilder section of my yard that has lots of rocks and rock outcroppings covered in pachysandra and ivy, including poison ivy.
My niece discovered the poison ivy by accident. She was playing Jungle Explorer and she climbed and ran all over the yard. Three days later my sister called me to say that my niece’s legs were covered in itchy bumps and that I’d better look for the culprit and pull it out. That’s a little easier said than done.
To help my niece with her itchy, blistery rash and to learn a bit more about what to do with the ivy in my garden, I went on-line and found lots of good information. These links helped me and my family, and I hope they will help you, too.
