Question Asked: Is this poison ivy? Growing in an overgrown weedy area in my yard.

Answer: Hi Susan -

As you may have guessed, I'm putting this in the poison ivy category. I've seen other submissions in your general area of the country with similar leaflet shapes. I can't see the vine itself as that would allow for an absolute positive id but there is enough here. The general leaflet shapes, middle leaflet on a longer stem - looks like poison ivy to me.
