Saturday, July 13, 2013 leaves on the wind...

she seemed to move everywhere
and music followed her 
like leaves on the wind.

Daucus carota (common names include wild carrot, (UK)
 bird's nestbishop's lace, and Queen Anne's lace (North America))
 is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae,
 native to temperate regions of Europe, southwest Asia
 and naturalised to North America and Australia.
i call it queen anne's lace.
it adds delicate beauty.
to my wild gardens.
next to my house.
just BE.

That is always a delicate flower, an exquisite and fine lace that enhances the landscape by offering a canopy of delicate shade to fall upon the land. Beautiful!

stunning macro of Queen Anne's lace! I prefer that name to the others, though they are interesting.

Is that a spreading disease or a shadow. Whichever, it makes for a striking capture.

When I was growing up we played with these. Had fun blowing to see what happened.

A pretty, delicate, beautifully coloured little plant! Somehow it reminds me of a fairyland wishing plant!

I love Queen Anne's lace (and that is what I call it too). The one in the foreground appears to be indigo, but I know it's the color casting effect and the shadow. Oh, so cool!
