Summer's Queen

Queen Anne, Queen Anne has washed her lace
{she choose 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 meadow's white...
-Mary Leslie Newton

Oh Sandi,
That's lovely... the flowers and the poem. Do you grow Queen Anne's Lace or buy it? I would love to grow it out front/side yards and am wondering if it's an easy grower.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Hi Sandi! I remember my Jaclyn wearing this as a crown on her head when she was little and marrying her Daddy!

Hello Sandi... I love Queen Anne's Lace! It grows wild all around here... yours looks so beautiful in the little bottles... to me, it is the epitome of a summer's day! ... xoxo Julie Marie PS Love the poem too!

Sandi your Queen Anne's Lace is oh so pretty. I love it. It is the perfect companion for all your awesome bottles. Everytime I see blooms in bottles like those I think of my grandmother's window sills full of little bouquets from the garden.
Hugs to you from here!
