    I love Queen Anne’s Lace too. So delicate with a long neck. Which reminds me…When I I was young my mother would tell us why it’s name is Queen Anne’s Lace. It’s named after the beautiful Anne Bolyn, one of Henry the Eigth’s wives. White and delicate, but the one drop of red in the flower represents her blood, as she was beheaded by the King. There was a song that she would sing to help us remember . A little morbid, but I have always remembered the name of the flower/weed. These are the lyrics.
    With her ‘ead, tucked, underneath ‘er arm,
    She walks the bloody tower,
    With ‘er ‘ead tucked underneath ‘er arm,
    At the midnight hour.
    My mother would sing it in a cockney accent which was always fun.
    Just a little diddy. I enjoy your blog ! Thanks for the beauty !
