Rare Beauty


Even now, in the heat of the summer, 

wild Queen Anne's Lace blooms along the roadside,

its delicate pattern perfectly suited to its name. 

There is a place near here, where, year after year, a pink one blooms,

and every year I discover it again, as if it were the rarest pearl. 



If the meadow was filled with pink Queen Anne's Lace, 

and there was only one white one, 

wouldn't that be the one we'd treasure?

It probably would :-)
Still, one can make all the white ones turn pink with an edit.
The blue sky looks good as a background.

walking alongside you in
this wildflower field

grandma's favorite)
Sure glad to find you here!

This is a rare treat for me indeed Connie, since I did not know that Queen Anne's Lace could be pink! It is absolutely beautiful, and so are your photographs here!

Thank you so much for sharing these today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

I just adore Queen Anne's Lace. Been trying to get some for my garden. I don't believe I've ever had the pleasure of seeing pink, guess I didn't know there was pink. Thank you for showing me these beautiful pictures today.
