Carrot Weed (Daucus Carota)

The flower heads of wild carrot (daucus carota), more poetically known as “Queen Anne’s Lace”, are pretty during all stages of their development (but not much liked in pastures).

  4. That is an incredibly lovely photo. Perfect patterns and superb light. That should be printed large and hung on the wall.

  6. I like the fact that the background is all black and does not distract the flower. 🙂
