Queen Anne's Lace

Such a lovely photo. Via
Queen Anne's Lace, also called "Wild Carrot," is a common plant in dry fields, ditches, and open areas. It was introduced from Europe, and the carrots that we eat today were once cultivated from this plant. I did not know that, did you? Info found here.

I used to have a friend who paired Queen Anne's Lace with roses from her rose garden for the most beauriful bouquets for her home.

I didn't know that about carrots. It grows wild all over the by ways, fields and shoulders of roads here in Virginia. I will miss it as it won't be growing in the desert environment that I will move to next year. :-(
