Mid-Summer Queen Anne's Lace

It is the hazy, humid hot mid point of sumer in New England and time to change the pails in my branch ladder on my front stoop.  Let's see....So far I have used begonias, daisies, and Gerber daisies. The mid summer choice for me is the delicate Queen Anne's Lace growing freely along the roadsides.

I combined it with the woodland ferns that are so successful in our garden. The bright green and white truly brighten the dark corner.

I love the delicacy of the blossoms on Queen Anne's Lace.

  1. I love your ladder. We have lots of fallen branches in the yard and you've just inspired me to do something with them. The flowers are pretty in the buckets. I love Queen Anne's lace.

    1. Thanks Jennifer. I am finding the ladder a great perch for many flowers. I especially like the wild ones.
