Ode to Queen Anne's Lace

Daucus carota

This lovely plant is probably considered an invasive weed in many parts of the world. At a landscape talk I heard that this plant is found on most airport tarmacs because the wings of the planes carry its seeds to far away places. According to the USDA plant database this plant is found in all 48 continental states as well as almost every province in Canada. I cannot help but love this plant- it fills the hay fields this time of year with its wispy blooms. I found Queen Anne's Lace here, at the Someville Landing, one of my favorite places in Maine.
