Queen Ann's Lace

The Queen Ann's Lace is absolutely beautiful this year and seems to be everywhere you look. All of the roadsides and fields in our area all look as if they are bordered with little lace doilies. It's a bittersweet sight for me though, because I know that we only have a couple more weeks before blooms fade with the end of summer.

Describing the Queen Ann's lace as doilies is perfect. It's having a good year around here too. I like how Mother Nature is putting her feminine touch in the ditches.

So pretty! Yes, they remind me of lace doilies or of giant snowflakes. Yours are especially pretty. Around our area they are starting to dry up and fade away. Lovely photo.

Love Queen Ann's Lace. When my kids were little, we would pick it and "dye" it different colors with food coloring-a little science lesson. they still remember!

It's so gorgeous! I'd love to have some of it in a mason jar on my kitchen table!

As a child, I remember being fascinated by this flower. My father insulted it and called it a weed (which only made me like it more).

Sadly, it doesn't grow heavily here ~ thanks for sharing the photo! (I still love the flower)
