Through the fields 'round my folks' home
Warmer than winter's
|Queen Anne's Lace |
in the fields around my folks' MO home
Things I didn't know: "A myth says the purplish flower at the center is a drop of blood shed when "Queen Anne" pricked herself while making the "lace". In reality, that small flower attracts insect pollinators. This nonnative Missouri plant competes against our native species."
