Field flowers

There really is something majestic about Queen Anne’s Lace. It has a way of elevating its humble surroundings, whether it is growing in a well-maintained flower bed or between the pavement cracks in Brooklyn. The feathery heads hover in the breeze, seemingly without care or apparent regard for their delicate stalks. But pick a leaf and it smells distinctly of carrots. Perhaps a peasant’s flower after all.

Queen Anne's lace, zinnias, cosmos, asters, pelargonium leaves, grasses, thistles
