If you're thinking of poison ivy - "Leaves of three, leave them be" look at the shape of the leaves. Totally different.

I'd go with wild strawberry, or maybe a leftover from a former garden. Definitely not poison ivy.

That sprig in the first picture is missing one of the Poison Ivy tells, -the middle leaf will have a stem about 1/4", while the two side leaves will have no stem at all. Therefore I agree, not Poison Ivy.
