Queen Anne's Lace, wild carrot, or daucus carota. Growing wild around our rental house in Maine.
Both Anne, Queen of Great Britain, and her great grandmother, Anne of Denmark, are taken to be the Queen Anne for whom the plant is named. It is so called because the flower resembles lace, prominent in fine clothing of the day; the red flower in the center is thought to represent a blood droplet where Queen Anne pricked herself with a needle when she was making the lace.
5x5 oil on cradled board, 1.5 depth, sides finished in gold, wired and ready to hang.
