I’m reaching back for this one, taken September 3, 2014, looking into the neighbor’s field from our old property.

  1. Very similar to Cow Parsley which is one of the very many types of Umbellifers which is a native to the UK and also has the nickname ‘Queen Anne’s Lace’. That’s quite a sight – the colour is so subtle and the light soft. A bucolic image.

    • Thank you, Andy. I don’t know if it’s the same cow parsley, but we have a plant here also that goes by that name. It looks like our Queen Anne’s lace but grows over five feet tall. Our Queen Anne’s lace is usually about two feet tall.

      • Umbellifers are a very confusing genus of plants and I’m quite sure I call many plants Cow Parsley when it isn’t actually that but something very similar. I think our Cow Parsley does grow to abut five foot over here.

    • Thanks, Lynn. So sorry you have been sick. You’re right: I should have given the Latin name for these. It’s Daucus carrot.
