 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  Today's flower is one of my favorites and is actually growing in my garden because I collected some seeds and spread them there.  This is Queen Anne's Lace.  It blooms June through September.  This particular bloom shows off the red spot that helped give it it's name.  It is supposed to resemble a drop of blood that Queen Anne supposedly shed when she pricked her finger while sewing some lace.  It is in the Parsley family and is also known as a Wild Carrot and can be an aggressive spreader.  It is one of my favorite flowers to photograph.


  1. Lovely photo of one of my favorite flowers

  2. That one certainly has a noticeable red spot. Some I look at do laso, although perhps smaller, but lots don't seem to have a spot, although I expect it is just buried below the little blossoms

    1. I was looking at others on the same plant and even up close I could not see spots on a lot of them.
