Queen Anne's Lace












Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has washed her lace
(She chose a summer's day)
And hung it in a grassy place
To whiten, if it may.
Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has left it there,
And slept the dewy night;
Then waked, to find the sunshine fair,
And all the meadows white.
Queen Anne, Queen Anne, is dead and gone
(She died a summer's day),
But left her lace to whiten in
Each weed-entangled way!

I love Queen Annes Lace. I've taken a few pics at the farm. I agree with Amanda, love seeing them line country roads.

I always loved Queen Anne's Lace in Nova Scotia. I don't think it grows here in Texas. Beautiful pictures!
