I know not to touch it. Trust me........
I'm just clearing out our creek, and don't want to mess with protected pieces.

Also, what's that bump?

No, it isn't ginseng.
American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius)

I don't know what the pinkish bump is. Most likely a gall?
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I'm pretty sure it's poison ivy
it's blurry but I think it's leaf gall mites or a leaf gall
Gardening is learning, learning, learning. That's the fun of them.
You're always learning !
