Okay so I know that summer is officially coming to an end and we are starting to have cooler nights. Some trees are starting to show signs of fall, but all that said I still wanted to share this story.
Remember that cute red head…oh yeah he had a run in with poison parsnip earlier this summer.
Here come the yucky pictures. In the morning it looked like Joshua had a bunch of bug bites about an hour later I noticed they were all starting to blister. He also had something that looked like a lightening bolt on his leg it was where some of the leaves had brushed against his leg and was more like a sunburn.
I asked him Josh doesn’t it hurt aren’t you uncomfortable. He told me, “Well big boys aren’t suppose to complain.” With all that he still gave me a little smile.
Taliah told me they were all pulling these plants out but it was really only Joshua that had reacted to it. Talli had a few spots of discolouring on her hands. Kind of a light brown smudge that lasted a few weeks, but caused her no discomfort. So put that in your mental file for next spring. Maybe I will link to this story next spring to remind us all to stay away from it!!
