Today's Flowers: Queen for a day

flowers

I've decided to join in the fun at Today's Flowers, where every Monday (er, Sunday evening) we can view flower contributions from bloggers around the globe. It's sort of like Skywatch Friday, only it's with flowers rather than skies. And you should all know by now that flowers are some of my favorite subjects.
This is Queen Anne's Lace taken with my macro lens. They look happy to me.

Hi, Kate
With all the majesty it can not be queen for a single day. Thanks for sharing so much beauty.
hugs, Denise

Hi Kate, your flowers look like lace, so the name is very appropriate. Beautiful photo.

Where or not the flowers are happy, Queen Anne's Lace always makes ME happy. This is a very well-done shot of the flowers.

Beautiful white flowers. Now, I know the name. They DO look happy, indeed and looking at them makes me happy. ;-)

Isn't it amazing how far this plant has spread. It is a very nice flower and grows in the side ditches and long roads here where I live. Insects love it.

We had the tail end of Hurricane Ike here all day. I lost my cherry tree and a lot of limbs. The neighbors lost three trees and they fell on a power line and that weight broke the power pole. Not a good day here in SW Ohio.

Mine are on Canon Pixels

I loved your Sky Watch - rather romantic I thought.
