Here They Come!

As spring rolls from south to north, expect to see lots of these two vines coming to life.

One of them is our old buddy, poison ivy. The other is a real friend, Virginia creeper.

It should be pretty obvious who is who: the 3-leaf poison ivy is on the left; the 5-leaf creeper is one the right. 

You will see them growing together quite often.
