Queen Anne's Lace



Queen Anne's Lace. So delicate and pretty. I picked a bouquet recently and had fun photographing it, then played with editing. Enjoy!













We are in Alberta visiting family this week. A few weeks ago my mother-in-law fell and broke her pelvis. She's making great progress, although recovery is slow. 

Linking with Mosaic Monday, hosted by Maggie of Normandy Life.

I am so sorry to read about your mother-in-law's fall. I hope that she heals well and as quickly as possible. It must be a comfort to her that you were able to get to Alberta to support her.
The Queen Anne's Lace is lovely. I usually gather one bouquet each summer. It doesn't last long and the table is soon full of little crawly creatures and tiny flower petals but it is such a beautiful bouquet in late summer!

Lovely shots! I hope your mother in law recovers quickly.

Maggie said...

Coucou Lorrie, je suis en train de rattraper la lecture de blogs et je reprends un peu le rythme, après une longue absence. Bon rétablissement à ta belle-mère, et à bientôt. Ces fleurs sont magnifiques. J'avais semé des fleurs similaires mais comme je n'avais pas eu le temps de m'en occuper elles ont 15 cm de haut... et les fleurs la taille d'un petit bouton, au lieu d'une large assiette. Je ferai mieux l'année prochaine...

Lovely, I planted Ammi Majus this year which is so similar. I have a vase full of it mixed with delicate pink roses.

Alex said...

Love the mini-posters you made! So sweet and pretty.
I'm glad you are both able to visit and help your M-In-L, it must have been a horrid shock and your visit will be just the thing.
We never know what's round the corner, do we?!
Many blessings,

There is so much beauty in Queen Anne's Lace, and so many folk overlook it as just a weed. Best of luck to your mother in law with her recovery. Enjoy the week.

Vee said...

Saying a prayer for your mother-in-law...so good to know that she is recovering well.

Ahhhh..I just love your edits. Queen Anne's Lace is growing all over The Ponderosa and some days it is the thing that keeps me going when I look out and see it everywhere. So lovely...such beauty in the midst of so much that is rustic and rough.

I will say a prayer for your MIL right now, Lorrie. I'm praying for a complete recovery.
Great shots of the Queen Ann's Lace, it's such a lovely wild flower.

Loevley photos...and words to go with them! Wishing your MIL a speedy and full recovery.

Rettabug said...

Sending ~~rapid healing prayers~~ for your MIL. I am very fearful of falling myself, now that I live alone. It is not fun!

Loved your photos but still not a fan of QALace. Makes me sneeze just looking at it~ LOL

Snap said...

Beautiful Queen Anne's lace ... love the quotes, too. I hope your MIL recovers swiftly. Happy Monday!

Marilyn Miller said...

Hope your mother-in-law continues healing well. What lovely photos of Queen Anne's Lace. I love them all.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I threw some Queen Anne's Lace seeds in my butterfly garden and now they have spread everywhere, crowding the other flowers out. They are much better off in a field where they can run free and like you, I find them willing subjects for my lens.

Cheryl said...

Queen Anne's lace is so delicate and lovely...amazing that they grow wild and are easily obtained! Your photos are wonderful.

Saying a prayer for your mother-in-law, that she would continue to move toward recovery.

I love Queen Anne's Lace, Lorrie, and you've captured it's beauty so well. Hope your MIL recovers quickly from her broken pelvis.
Seeing your Miss A. sewing, was such a sweet sight, and then the tea party...such fun at Nana's house!

Sylvia said...

Lorrie, I associate Queen Anne Lace with Ontario because I sister pressed many of them. They are obviously on the other end of the country. Best recovery for you MIL.

I'm sorry to hear about your MIL's broken pelvis. Sending her positive healing vibes. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos of Queen's Anne lace. Enjoy the rest of your visit in Alberta.

Debby Ray said...

Oh...be still my heart! I LOVE Queen Anne's Lace and these photos are absolutely stunning. Love the waterlogue effects too...lovely mosaics and words.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

I loved this post; remember many a day picking these in a bouquet for my mom when I was young.

So SORRY to hear about your MIL..I can see that she is in good hands, and your reader friends will keep her in prayer! :)

Deanna Rabe said...

Glad to hear your MIL is recovering!

I love Queen Anne's Lace. Around our area we have a lot of Poison Hemlock growing, it looks like Queen Anne's lace at first glance. Big difference though! It's good to know the difference!

Barb said...

Beautiful, peaceful pics. I am so sorry about your mother-in-law. That is a very difficult injury. We will be praying for her as well as your family.

xoxo,
