Beware of Wild Parsnip

You may think you've had a run in with poison ivy, but wild parsnip may be the culprit. It looks like Queen Anne's lace with yellow flowers. Don't pick it or get any of the 'sap' on you or you may look like this. UGHHH! I saw an article about it in Better Homes and Gardens and have never seen it, or at least I don't think I have. They say to treat it like a 2nd degree burn!

    Wow, thanks for the warning...I had never heard that before! Sure looks painful!!! Don't know if I've ever seen wild parsnip around here but I'll sure keep an eye out for it!
