Title

Queen Anne's Lace_Wild Carrot

Description

I have long been an admirer of this weed, even as a child. Since the adults said it was awful and made them sneeze I abandoned it until I began to paint and saw the delicate beauty of it in a different light. Yes, I even liked goldenrod, but found that it did make me sneeze. Once while teaching at a school next to the beach in West Haven, CT, I sneezed 25 times while up at the board. The children roared with laughter but I could not speak thereafter I was so hoarse, until I got home. A bad day! I still love wild flowers, allergy or not.
