Poison Ivy Berries

It’s been a while since we’ve had a photo of Poison Ivy—thank goodness—but Hickory and I ran across a large piece of mature vine that came down in the storm.

Get a look at those berries, really called drupes. They are one of the only native ones that are white and mature late enough to provide a winter food for many songbirds. Not us. Not you humans either!

By the way, this plant’s scientific name is Toxicodendron radicans. Toxic, it says.
