Her Royal Highness


As long as we have to wait a bit for our summer flowers,


I will have to settle for these 'leftovers' from last season.


Maybe 'settle' is not the right word.


When I saw these 'spent' Queen Anne's Lace 


I couldn't help notice the delicate 'remains'  of  this noble summer flower.


 These are about to become the nutrients for the next generation.

  2. It's nice that you are able to find something positive to enjoy while you patiently wait. You must be an optimist.

  3. I must be warped, my first thought was "Soylent Green" LOL!

    I am amazed that they made it through winter, winds, and rain. Very nice, Jim!

  5. Such beautiful pictures - I wish you could share some of the flowers we've already got down here in California - our flowers all started blooming really early this year as it's so mild…..

    Hang in there, it can't be long now :)

  7. Once my husband was annoyed that I didn't take enough pictures of something he though important and stated: "But you can take all those pictures of WEEDS!" So Jim, it's nice to know that I'm not alone.

  11. Hi Jim- the Queen is among my summer favorites. And like you, I even love the winter leftovers. These flowers photograph beautifully- no matter what stage of their life they are captured. Yours are stunning--
