July 24th, photo of the day: Daucus carota

Also known as wild carrot, bird’s nest, bishop’s lace, and Queen Anne’s lace. (Thanks Wikipedia!)

I didn’t know it was a wild carrot, and now I kinda want to go find some and see how “carrot-y” the roots really are!

In the US, we call it Queen Anne’s lace, the drop of red in the center is said to be the blood drawn while she was making the lace.
