Lovely! Did you get any other shots of this that is more straight on that kind would do better on a Card front! I love flowers they make me smile and perk right up I am going to have my daisy's soon enough the sun is shining more every day!

Just beautiful!! I am envious of both her green thumb and her arranging talent!! Your photography captures it perfectly.

The white lacy "snowflake-like" flowers are Queens Anns Lace I believe.

You're right, its a Queen Anne's Lace. Grows to 7-8 feet tall.

There is a tiny red dot in the middle of each Queen Anne's lace flower. My mother told me when I was a little girl that the queen pricked her finger while making the lace.
