Queen Anne's Lace

Queen Anne's Lace is one of my favorite wildflowers. I love the single red flower in the center where Queen Anne pricked her finger while making the lace. I photoshopped this image quite a lot and had to remove my blue shoes from the bottom where I got in the photo. I left a little blue, but don't think it detracts too much, do you?

That is lovely. I love Queen Anne's Lace too. I remember it grew in a field next to the xchool I went to in Cyprus - that was the first time I had seen it. the blue hardly shows, looks like a shadow.

That's a very beautiful photograph, Bobbie. It looks like it came out of a fairy tale forest.

I have got some flowers like this in my garden, and did a posting about them in July, I think, saying they reminded me of Elizabethan ruffs, but I had no idea they were called this, so thank you for enlightening me.

We used to pick these from the fields when we were children and pretend they were fancy parasols and we were princesses...

I had to zoom in to see what you did with photoshop, it looks very subtle and delicate, nice work

Wow, I love the one red flower in the middle. I don't think I have ever seen these around here or maybe I wasn't looking. I will have to keep an eye out. Thanks for sharing.

I love the work you are doing with these pictures, Mom. It's so obvious you are having a great time and creating lovely results :)

I wish we had Queen Anne's Lace growing wild around here. I would be in heaven having bouquets of it around me all the time.
