Queen Anne's Lace

This is one of my favorite flowers to photograph.  I actually googled it today to find out more and discovered that it is also called "Wild Carrot".  While we already know where to find it, did you know it was introduced from Europe, and the carrots that we eat today were once cultivated from this plant?
Queen Anne's Lace can grow up to four feet tall with fern-like leaves that are two to eight inches long. This plant is best known for its tiny, white flowers which bloom in clusters resembling lace.
You will find this plant from May to October. Amazingly enought, it is a biennial plant, which means it lives for two years. Spending the first year growing and the second year blooming.   Many people consider this plant and invasive weed. 

I consider it just another stunning piece of God's Art.
