Any view will do

Viewed from underneath Queen Anne's Lace is still gorgeous.  The QAL is filling the meadow with its delicate blossoms, but the  pink vetch, orange butterfly weed and waxy rose milkweed flowers are still there and the lavender blooms of the oregano contrast with the very palest of pink soapwort.  You also may also know it as  Bouncingbet and it was used to create suds for washing clothes in colonial America.  See the plethora of names it has gathered to itself at the Ohio Perennial and Biennial Weed Guide, including dog's cloves, London pride, and ragged sailor.

For more on Queen Anne's Lace or wild carrot, here is a wonderful site from Canada, Ontario Wildflowers

Storms again last night, continued heat and humidity, but they are bringing all this beauty to the land!


  1. I think this under view is even more interesting! Great shot.

  2. The Q.A.L. has blossomed here in the last week. Cool and dry here, for a change.
