Photo Friday: A weed by any other name…

My cover designer, Chad Green, asked me to take some photos of Queen Anne’s Lace.  The setting is mid-Michigan, so

.  Chad wanted a better view of the underside for his design.

I got to appreciate some of the nuances and beauty of the Queen.

There’s something so hopeful about a weed called Queen Anne’s Lace.  Don’t you think?

For more photos, hop on over to Pierced Wonderings and take a look.  You will love what you see.  I promise.

      Thanks Merlinda. I’d love to see your painting.

  2. I have always been very fond of them too. I find it hard to think of them as weeds

      I agree, Molly. I bet they were cultivated at one time, and became a weed because they now grow everywhere.

  3. It is a hopeful and elegant name and your pics show why. I’m especially enamored of your second photo

      I like that one, too, Jeanna. I’m thinking about using it as an inside photo for my novel, A Ship of Pearl.
