Who wouldn't like Queen Anne's lace? Although, she tends to wear it all the time. Nice capture.

I love this plant. So complex a pattern, yet so simple-- and so many in a back field. It's also known as wild carrot, bird's nest, bishop's lace,as well as Queen Anne's lace.

Although I've admired it often, I have never thought about Queen Anne's Lace looking like a snowflake. Thanks for getting me to see something in a new way yet again, BC!

By the way, it was "bumbleberry" pie. I'm not sure if it's just a local thing, but it's all the berries that are in season-- this one was raspberries, blueberries... and something else I've forgotten, but it sure tasted good!

I also had never noticed the resemblence to a snowflake, but once the idea is put in your head, it's all so clear! Gorgeous.

Hi Brattcat! Re your question on Florida Fotos: Yes, I believe they are black-eyed susans.

But, don't blame me. I didn't give them a black eye!

Have a great weekend!

He would say, "They all look alike to me."

Elenka said...

By the way, you're the only person I ever saw actually have a clump of them in a perennial garden.

Jilly said...

Beautiful. One of the most beautiful flowers that some call a weed. A weed is a flower too, as a gardener friend of mine reminds me.

Hilda said...

Now this is one flower which I wish could grow here. It's so lovely and delicate.

JM said...

I think I know what this is but I have never seen it as a piece of lace and it really looks like one!

I think if Snowflake Bentley would enjoy the summer blooms; though I don't know if he would photograph them to the extent that he photographed snowflakes.
