Inspired by Queen Anne's Lace - Lin Frye

9" x 12"
Arches 140#CP

You KNOW summer is here when the Queen Anne's Lace graces the roadsides with their white, lacy doilies. I pass clusters of these carrot-relatives and remember how one can take those dainty flower heads, dip them in a batter of flou4, sugar and milk and fry them into a special treat! Their 'roots' are carrot-like and edible, but I never found one that was tender enough to consume.

But more than their edibility, I LOVE how they give the roadsides such as soft, old-fashioned look - like Grandmom's antimacassars on sofas of green.

Have a great Saturday!
