Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne's  Lace brd

 

Introduced and naturalized in Canada & America, Daucus carota  (Wild Carrot) is often known as “Queen Anne’s lace”. Both Anne, Queen of Great Britain, and her great grandmother Anne of Denmark are taken to be the Queen Anne for which the plant is named.  It is so called because the flower resembles lace; the red flower in the centre is thought to represent a blood droplet where Queen Anne pricked herself with a needle when she was making the lace.

  2. ….it truly is a wonderful piece–lace is so often associated with an antique look, which this has so ably accomplished.

      Many thanks. I associate these with childhood summers and memories – your observation and critique is very much appreciated.

  3. Would always pick a bouquet and adorn mom’s wicker chair on the porch so that she could sit and pretend she was royalty.
