forest stars

February 27, 2010

In black and white  or in colour this wild flower enchants me all year long. A shower of small twinkling stars in the woods.

I think it is called “Queen Anne’s Lace” or wild carrot. In French “la berce des prés”, a very common wild flower in fields and forests. As for “lace”, when you see this plant in Summer… no need to explain its name.

It looks like the most delicate natural embroidery.
