More Pods=More Beauty…

Only a plant guy could love a pod like that.The pods here are from a Queen Anne’s Lace-Daucus carota- plant holding down a ‘waste area”.The flowers are flat topped that resemble lace in a flat umbel.QAL bloom late spring til fall.The weed grows about 1+m with feathery leaves much the same as your garden carrots.In addition to waste places,QAL holds down fields.meadows,roadsides,the usual handouts.You have seen them all over I know.Notice how the flower head curls up in the pod stage.These plants can make nice arrangements with both fresh and dried flowers/pods.So many pods,so little time.Thanks for reading.Pic by td-help from ediblewildfoods.com-thanks!
