Barn Quilt vs. Poison Ivy

I spotted this barn quilt as we were traveling Route 6 just outside of Smethport, PA last weekend and begged my husband to stop so I could take a photo of it for "the blog". Yes, even my husband understands the importance of a good blog photo opportunity, so he quickly pulled over to the side of the road. I opened the Jeep door and noticed that he had parked in an enormous patch of poison ivy! I'm all for getting the perfect blog photo, but not at the expense of spending a week itching incessantly! I quickly closed the door and claimed that a photo from inside the Jeep would be just fine, so the barn quilt photo isn't exactly what I hoped to capture, but at least I'm not itching!

I think it's a great photo and I don't blame you for not wanting to stand in that poison ivy patch. I've never seen a barn quilt "in person"...only in pictures....would love to see one someday!

Self preservation is more important than photos for the blog! Good choice!

So glad you noticed the poison ivy. I'm not sure if I'd know it if i saw it.

Nothing is worth the risk of getting poison ivy. Sure am glad you noticed it.

Great Photo! Wonder why it was hanging there.....sure glad you spotted the poison ivy before you got out! Excitement for quilty things sometimes makes us leap before we think!

great photo.....understand your position on poison ivy and congratulate you on your observation skills...me, I would have carelessly jumped out of the car, taken the photo, and suffered for a week
