Queen Anne's Lace

We're not moved in yet; still in temporary quarters, but starting to settle in a little and explore the Portland area.  Today we found a running trail with plenty of Queen Anne's lace along the edges. Technically a weed, Queen Anne's lace is one of my favorite "flowers" because it reminds me of childhood summers in Indiana.

Lovely photo, Melissa. Welcome to Portland! Glad you're settling in, even if it is just a little. While I don't drink coffee, I'm not averse to visiting over a glass of juice or some such while you enjoy your coffee. My e-mail address is olhanson@gmail.com.

Ha ha, I love Queen Anne's Lace, too! I actually have 4 3'x4'"Andy Warhol-style" bright pop panels of QAL in my living room. While mine remind me of the bright vibrant energy of the anticipation of summer, yours reminds me of the nostalgic, endless calm of summers past.
