Photo Friday: Common

One of the most "common" wildflowers in the United States is Queen Anne's Lace. It is related to the carrot and its root smells like a carrot and is edible. It's latin name is, "daucus carota". Many people consider this flower a weed because it is so common. I find it very beautiful with it's lacy, white flower. These ants find it particularly attractive as well.

I love Queen Anne's lace, but then again I love buttercups, which are also considered a weed ;)
