    Hi Guys,

    I think I know what this is (I'm getting better at this), but wanted to get a 2nd (or 3rd) opinion before I go out of my way to pick up this scrounge.

    Thanks!

    I hope you are already out there. Black locust is great stuff. The ivy is English Ivy, not Poison Ivy - at least the stuff with the leaves is English Ivy. I can't promise there isnt some poison ivy hiding in there too.

    Yes, but unfortunatly I think I'm going to miss it. Wife having a big party at our house on Saturday so I can't "mess up" the yard until Sunday. I'm afraid it will be gone by then (if its not already)! Oh well, BL will come around again (maybe in 6 months, if I'm lucky).

    Dammit,man, you've got to prioritize! Your wife will get over it in a couple of weeks, but that BL will be gone forever! ==c
