  1. I love Queen Anne's Lace. I'm afraid I am allergic to it. I must be happy just to enjoy it along the side of the road. Hugs my friend! Bonnie

  2. The gardener's difference between a weed or a flower is where the plant is growing. If you like it where it is...it's a flower. If not...weed.

    This one looks like it's related to the carrot family and could be either Queen Anne's Lace--edible when young; or Water Hemlock--which is deadly poisonous. To tell the difference and for more info:

  9. To me Queen Anne's Lace is a beautiful wildflower. I have tried to get it to grow in my gardens but it's never taken. I suppose if I didn't want it I would have it everywhere. I remember as a kid my Mom cut some and put them in a glass with food coloring. We watched the color climb it's way up to the blossom. Something I also did with my kids! Thanks for the memory.

  10. Who cares it is pretty. If it is Queen Anne's Lace it is aptly named. I love the bluejay photo in the post below.

  11. I think it is really pretty. It doesn't really matter if weed or not. Many weeds are pretty (and easier to grow) lol.

  12. Well it's a wild flower of course :)
    I have dug up many a wildflower and transplanted to my garden. They look nice and they grow "like weeds" ;)

  13. Unfortunately, it's a weed around here. A beautiful weed, but so invasive. Lovely shot, Deb.

  14. A weed would never be named after a queen, right?!!
