The second looks like my bete noir ......... Acuba japonica

Poison Ivy Identification after Rash

Good idea Fidget ... any plants exuding white sap when you cut them?


If so that's likely to be the culprit .. euphorbia sap can cause awful wheals and burns if you get it on your skin; worse when exposed to sunlight.

If your new home is in Great Britain you won't find Poison Ivy anywhere ... it doesn't grow in the UK  thank the heavens 


Show us some more photos of the areas where you've been working prior to noticing the rash,  and photos of the rash might be helpful too ... if they're decent

Datura stramonium  https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=536


It is a poisonous plant so read the advice on the link above before handling. 


Hope that helps 

Help, please!

I think it's worse on young trees and hardly noticeable on large ones.  I too love walnut trees ... there was one in the veg garden on the farm when I was a child ... reminds me of home 


As for the rhyme ... yes I remember various people quoting it ... if the result of beating the wood is as positive as beating women and dogs, I wouldn't waste my energy if I were you
