Here by Glimpses Known - Queen Anne's Lace


 This one is for clarentine , who seems fond of Queen Anne's Lace. Taken at sunset, along the canal.

The lore behind the name: The plant is named after Queen Anne of England, renowned as an expert lace maker. But one day, she pricked her finger with a needle and a drop of blood fell into the lace, whence comes the deep purple-red bud in the center of the flower, which you can see in the top right photo.



And a bonus close-up:
