When 'Queen Anne's Lace' is blooming, it is a sign that August is almost upon us.
I saw these at the park yesterday with Sophie.
Did you know, that legend has it, that the reddish black spot in the centre
is a drop of Queen Anne's blood?
Well, as she was stitching away (I guess Queens in the day actually did this)
she pricked her finger with the needle and a drop fell on her lace-work.
What can I say?!
Other than I LOVE this flower and all its intricacies.
Queen Anne's Lace blossom and company, an ant. I had to hold the blossom because of the wind.
