queen anne

Queen Anne's Lace... I'm not sure what it is about these intricate, colorless beauties, but I have always been intrigued with these flowers. They always seem to beckon me from overgrown roadsides. My romantic hubby pulled the car over randomly one time when we were driving alone together and picked one, then handing it to me. (If this was illegal, I promise, it was the only time I've ever picked one, er, well... except for the one time I wanted to see if you could put food coloring in the water to change its color... I digress... p.s. it does work ;)

The tiny flowers give it such depth, yet it's really pretty surprisingly flat across. I think it's texture that makes it so interesting to me... especially in monotone...

p.s. I had no idea, until surfing around about Queen Anne's Lace, but apparently they can be used as a contraceptive (like a morning-after pill type). Anyways, if that makes you curious, here is one source and another.
