I think this snap shows a tangle of new and more mature clematis leaves. DH swears clematis is mixed with poison ivy. Thoughts?

From your pic - not poison ivy. Not to say there might be some hidden out of the pic.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we can't eat money. Cree proverb

Many of my clematis grow in leaves of three. I always laugh at my
Clematis and tell them to quit trying and trick me. I do have poison ivy too. Mainly it's all my large Clematis Jackmanii type.

So even knowing I have poison ivy, I KNOW it is not in the Clematis. The clematis can look really similar, but I think you are okay. Clematis have great root systems to keep other plants around them out.

Many blessings for a wonderful week!

I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.
