Maine Monday: Queen Anne’s Lace
“A weed is a flower growing in the wrong place.”
– George Washington Carver.
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).
