Common but Pretty

"Queen Anne's Lace", with its tell-tale dark purplish center, grows abundantly in our bay area. The breeze is usually too strong to get a still shot, but I was lucky while walking this evening. Just sharing because I don't have anything creative to post right now, and because it's so pretty!

I love it! I use to dry it and use it in nature pictures.

Our Queen Anne's Lace is a beautiful pink flowered vine. It's actually Queen's Wreath Vine or Coral Vine, but not called that by most.

Looks like a very creative photo to me. Lovely!

Interesting! What we call Queen Ann's lace here in Alabama is different too. It doesn't have a purple center and is a smaller "flower"

Oh, I love Queen Anne's Lace. We used to live in an area with a field full of it during the summer -- I loved driving out that way.

Yep, we have a lot of QAL that looks like yours. It grows freely along the roads in Northern Indiana. I am always amazed when people call our wildflowers "weeds".

Queen Anne's lace are so delicate and remind me of snowflakes. Love them. I often take photos of the flower heads too. I also love milkweed pods when they open and the fluffy seed puffs drift away to where ever the wind take them. Don't see as many nowadays.
