~ Happy Weekend ~

I just picked these pretties at a little creek near us. They are just so light and lacey, the little blooms kind of remind me of snowflakes. I think these are called Queen Ann's Lace....not sure. Do you know?
It is a lovely day today and the same is predicted for Sunday, Father's Day. We're having a bar-b-que tomorrow and Carl requested burgers, dogs and his favorite macaroni salad.....brownies and ice cream too....yum. Wishing everyone a happy day and a wonderful Father's Day....hugs, Linda

I've always heard them called Queen Anne's Lace. My sister says you can put food coloring in the water and change the color of the "lace" ~ wouldn't that be pretty!
Your plans for tomorrow sound perfectly delightful. Enjoy!

I love Queen Anne's lace but could not put it in a vase as Jos has hay fever. So I have fake and it looks so real that people feel it...lol. Did you know that Queen Anne's lace is actually a wild carrot?

Yes, it is queen anne lace. I love them. They are wildflowers and they are always beautiful growing everywhere. I tried to plant some in my yard once though, and they would not grow. lol.
Have a fun day.
