Just a thought, but the five leaf plant could be Virginia Creeper, which looks very similiar to poison ivy, but not quite as potent. Many people use Virginia Creeper as a landscape plant, but some people are allergic to it. Its vigorous growth habit and overall hardiness makes it a good choice for some places where other creeping climbing vines won't thrive. Just treat it with caution. It is a very pretty vine, and would grow in the same environment as poisin ivy.
