Sunset and Queen Anne


The Queen Anne's lace is in bloom everywhere! The neighboring fields are blanketed in a carpet of white that seems to go on forever.




I have always loved the delicate flowers that compose this plant, especially the blood red flower in the center. It really makes me marvel at the wonder of nature.


Perseids Meteor showers will be at peak in the early am on August 12th. Look to the sky just after the moon sets.

Chris, Queen Annes lace is one of my favourite wild flowers.. Just a gorgeous long view through the field...
