Queen Ann's Lace. I've always liked this 'weed'. I like the story that goes along with it too. It's name is due to the fact that the flower resembles lace; the red flower in the center represents a blood droplet where Queen Anne pricked herself with a needle when she was making the lace. Actually, the red flower in the center is there to attract insects. It took me a long time (Several weeks) to find a Queen Ann's Lace with a red flower on it. Not sure if others had lost that flower or not. But...Here you go anyway. Hope you appreciate my search.
