Oh goodness, I never looked any farther than the leaves of three!  I didn’t notice the thorns..I just made the assumption of poison ivy.  Good grief!  I guess it would be best not to send me out Blackberry pickin’ when I don’t even know it when it jumps up and practically bites me.  I appreciate being corrected.  Maybe next time I will appreciate what I am looking at!    OK.  Here is a picture of the "pods"..I guess flower pods, of a bloom that looks like a combination Hollyhock and Rose of Sharon.  Can you tell me what it is?  The "pods" are, I guess the unfurled flowers and I am including the flower too.
