dreamy



Queen Anne's Lace is one of those flowers that look great in all the stages of it's growth -- from the buds that slowly unfold, to the lacy white flower heads, to the seed heads all folded in on themselves. Even the lacy foliage is beautiful.

And they grow wild all along the edges of the roads around my home. What more could a girl ask for? ;)

I'll tell you what more a girl could ask for, I want them in my garden! Do you think that's tacky?
