Queen Anne's Lace
This wild version of the carrot is one of the most common and best known "weeds" we have. It is hard to imagine what a fallow field would look in summer without the white flower heads bobbing in the breeze. The Bird's nest name comes from the dried flower heads that curl up to resemble small bird nests.
It is thought that the carrots escaped from the gardens of the early European settlers in North America have thrived in the wild to become what we know as Queen Anne's Lace, just as had happened in Europe. Indeed the roots can be eaten just like a small pale carrot if harvested while still young and tender. Pull up a plant anywhere and smell the root. You will find it smells just like a carrot.
Always a late bloomer the Crepe Myrtle bush is worthy of the wait with it's showy flowers.
