Queen Anne’s Lace

Queen Anne’s Lace (Daucus carota) is one of those plants that’s either a weed or wildflower. It all depends on one’s tolerance for disorder.

To me it’s a welcome sight. It speaks of survival against the odds.


I hurried back to Hermon Woodlands this evening, hoping to get another chance at capturing the wildflowers’ wind dance in better focus. Alas the wind stilled itself, and the sun had hidden right behind the forest canopy.

I found them ready for a good night’s sleep, and now I will do likewise.

Summer Photo Walk, June 8


The weather is hot yet dreary today. It is possible that we may add to our coffers of rainfall once again. We’ve had entirely too much rain over the past two months (17 inches, according to the Lima News).

This morning I wore my oldest pair of shoes and headed toward one of the soggy parks. The light was unreliable at best. I took some B&W photos, too, but many of those turned out blurry because I forgot to adjust the ISO for the dim light in the forest. Despite this issue, I did find a few of the B&W worth posting on this blog.

By the way, have any of you had luck with using a Facebook page for your blog? I don’t do much with mine, but I noticed there’s lots of features now for making posts, like easy slideshow videos and “Notes” which can incorporate text, photos and video. There’s also some ambitious-looking carousel post which can have links to multiple destinations. This makes me curious as to why Facebook hasn’t harnessed their publishing assets to create the go-to destination for bloggers. It’s like they intentionally left room in the online world for platforms like WordPress and the like.
