  1. Love this feature, k! I've always been a big fan of queen anne's lace. Did you know that it actually is Wild Carrot? Doesn't really grow around here - so I miss it. Love seeing these pics and other beautiful work inspired by this flower...

  2. Beautiful pictures!

    How about chicory? It's another scrappy roadside plant and oh, that blue flower!

    When I was a kid I used to pick queen anne's lace and put it in colored water ... the white flowers would eventually acquire a slight tinge.

    Summer walks and drives? Show me any plants but the dreaded POISON IVY. It seems to be everywhere I look.

  3. Beautiful finds, RikRak!
    I also love seeing the wildflowers in the ditches.
    My favorites are the cornflowers.

  4. Thanks so much for choosing my Love Struck photo for this, it is a beautiful collection! Love the idea about putting it in colored water, didn't know this but my kids will be thrilled to give it a try!

  5. What a wonderful collection of Queen Anne's Lace and I'm so honored to have been included! There are so many beautiful wild flowers...I only wish many of them grew here in the Phoenix area.

  6. so beautiful pieces! thank you for including mine!
    queen anne's lace is always going to bring piece of warm summer to me, even when day will get short and trees loose all their leaves.


  7. i've been in love with queen anne's lace lately too -- it seems to be everywhere, and i love it!
