It’s hard to believe but the brilliantly-named Queen Anne’s Lace is actually a form of wild carrot!
It’s one of my favourite, favourite plants – I love how it appears to be topped with a little cage, bulging with petalled tendrils (which it is) just before it blooms into an exploding firework of white petals.
I took these photos after finishing work early – just down the road from me at Weston Shore. It’s an odd little industrial sea-sidey location (which means you really only get locals there, it’s definitely not a touristy place). Today though it felt like the Med, what with all the sunshine and free-range kids running around. Just lovely.
So, yes, some people might think of them as weeds but I love Queen Anne’s Lace! What’s your favourite flower and/or weed?
