poison ivy in Memphis

In case you were wondering whether you can find poison in the city of Memphis (in October) the answer is YES. I was having lunch in a terrific Mexican restaurant and noticed that the huge tree outside the window was covered in very familiar looking leaves. I excused myself for a few minutes to investigate and took a few pix. Funny thing is that the tree was growing in a well-kept little garden, but the gardener clearly didn't know about poison ivy. The vine was climbing up all around and its leaves were mixed with those of the tree, which can be very confusing to people.
