“A weed is a flower growing in the wrong place.”

When we were in Maine it just happened to be the height of the Queen Anne’s Lace season. Now, previous to my Picture Spring class where I discovered the beauty of the dandelion, I thought the Queen Anne’s Lace to be nothing but a nuisance flower and/or weed.

How fortunate this flower is to have such magnificent views!

I should have given this flower much more respect given its royal name.

But with the way it’s been crowding out my garden I had never felt anything but animosity.

And, as if I needed a reminder, here is the Queen Anne’s Lace demanding a little love (heart shape in lower right-hand corner).
