In looking through some of the photos I’ve taken in the past few months, I found this nice photo of a Queen Anne’s Lace flower. It’s nothing spectacular, but for some reason, the angle makes it visually interesting to me.
The best part of the whole thing was that I took it when I was out for an evening walk with my wife. Sometimes, the simple and easy things produce the best photos!
And while I really like the photo, I decided to look up Queen Anne’s Lace on the interent and I found that the domestic carrot is actually a cultivar of this plant! Perhaps I should explain. Every time I get out the string trimmer and try to cut down the plants near the fence line on my property, I slice through a bunch of these. And I always thought they smelled familiar but could never place it. Now I realize that it’s carrot I smell.
So anyway, hope you all enjoy the photo and please excuse my ramblings on wild carrots!
