help with plant identification....

hi there! i am new to the forums so.... nice to meet all of you!! i am a new homeowner and i am trying to make sense of what the previous homeowner did (if anything) to her flower beds.

presently there is a plant growing very rapidly in the beds, and i am not sure if it is a perennial of some sort....or a weed. LOL (i am new at this gardening thing.)

can anyone tell me if they know what this is??

I don't know what it is, but it looks like it has buds. Why not just let it bloom? That way, if it turns out to be something you like, you can keep it, and if not, you can just remove it. That's what I would do, anyway. :)

If you like, you could post pics of the flowers when it is in bloom. That would make it much easier to ID. :)

IT'S POISON IVY!!!!

Just kidding. Post a picture when it blooms - I'm aching to know now. Meanwhile I'll poke through some of my books and see what I can find.

Rick :lol:
