Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne, wife of James I of England, was a great lace maker. One day, she pricked her finger, spilling a drop of blood on a nearby flower. Hence the tiny purplish black or deep red floweret gracing the flower. (Anextraordinaryday.net)

Also known as wild carrot, bishops lace, bird’s nest

Native to temperate regions of Europe and southwest Asia, naturalized to North America and Australia.

The root is edible and given that it typically grows in the same conditions as poison hemlock, being able to tell the difference could save your life.

Medicinal qualities of Queen Anne’s lace: urinary tract problems including kidney stones, bladder problems, water retention, excess uric acid in urine, also used to treat gout

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”-WB Yeats

“Her lawn looks like a meadow.

And if she mows the place

She leaves the clover

And the Queen Anne’s lace.”

-Edna St. Vincent
