Poison Ivy Stop Sign

This is a stop sign on a post, stuck against a phone pole, in suburban Kentucky.

Somehow, the phone pole and stop sign are growing out of a hedge by someone’s house.

And poison ivy, not wanting to miss out on a good party, has joined in, and is climbing up the phone pole.

If left alone, the poison ivy vine will climb all the way to the top of the pole and even try to cover the crossbars on top. 

Hopefully it will get removed before some hapless utility worker gets the worst poison ivy rash of his life.
