I recently went to the farm to check on the garden and the bees. While there, I noticed some dead branches in the Lilac bush. Since I didn’t want to go to the barn to get the clippers, I reached in and broke off the dead branches.
A while later my hand began to itch. Then my arm. Then my face. Yep! I hadn’t paid any attention to the other growth in the bush. Poison Ivy.
I’ve never had that before, nor do I ever want to get it again. I ended up in the minute clinic for a steroid shot and a prescription. In the future, I think I’ll look before grabbing some dead branches!
