Queen Anne's Lace/ Sky Watch

Sun setting over Queen Anne's lace

Queen Anne's lace is abundant this year, reaching tall to the heavens. Here it is caressing a golden sunset.

The queen anne's lace against the golden sky is so beautiful. Our Queen Anne's lace blooms very early here and is already gone to seed.

I have a small patch, but has been killed by my mower. I got to like it when I found out it is called Queen Anne. Got quite sentimental about it.
