Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
― John LubbockThe Use Of Life

This photo was taken on a bike ride a few miles from my home.  When I saw this fine display of Queen Anne’s Lace, I had to stop and snap some shots.  Another name for it is Wild Carrot, and while edible, I understand it is not very tasty.  It is, however, an ancestor of the sweet roots we eat today.

  1. Thanks for the pingback…I did not know that Queen Anne’s lace was also called wild carrot! I have seen “weeds” whose leaves looked a lot like carrots that I have pulled up…had no idea I was pulling up Queen Anne’s lace…I probably wouldn’t have done it. 🙂

  2. I’ll catch up soon, I hope. I liked the phrase,”“Rest is not idleness,” I do some of my best work when I’m resting. Bet you do too. Queen Anne’s Lace is one of my favorites. I’ll have to incorporate it into my garden. Dried, you can use it in so many craft projects. Never thought of tasting them though.:)

    1. I was surprised, as I worked on this one, to see so many Queen Anne’s Lace tattoos online. Pretty, but I wouldn’t have thought people found it so inspiring as to indelibly ink it onto their skin!
