Queen Anne's Lace

Good evening friends, I took this picture yesterday and wanted to share it and a poem.................................

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has washed her lace
(She chose a summer's day)
And hung it in a grassy place
To whiten, if it may.

Queen Anne, Queen Anne, has left it there,
And slept the dewy night;
Then waked, to find the sunshine fair,
And all the meadows white.
Queen Anne, Queen Anne, is dead and gone
(She died a summer's day),
But left her lace to whiten in
Each weed-entangled way!

Mary Leslie Newton

Have a great Friday!


  1. I never heard this poem before, and I love it, just as I've loved Queen Anne's Lace since I was a little girl. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my space. I love your photography! I'm a photographer, and love how you're mixing it in with your blog. Beautiful. I'll definitely be back!

  3. I got married in July, one of the filler flowers in my bouquets suddenly became my florist said, "No problem, I'll just go behind the shop and cut a bunch of Queen Anne's Lace - and it'll be FREE!!"
