Welcome To The 82nd Masterpiece Monday!

Can you guess what kind of flower this is? Queen Anne's Lace perhaps?  Not quite..........
 Would you believe this is a carrot gone to seed?
 I experimented with some vegetables, carrots, cabbage, celery and lettuce.
 I planted the tops of the carrots we ate and the stem portions of the other veggies and they grew!

 No seeds needed. I never harvested the carrots. I wanted to see what would happen if I let them grow. I was pleasantly surprised, I never dreamed that carrots would flower!
 All I did was plant about a dozen carrot tops just below the surface last Spring, And I got this beautiful bouquet literally from kitchen scraps I would normally throw out.

Would not have guessed the lacy plant was carrot tops gone crazy. Neat idea. Thanks for hosting this week, I added a new to me cloche and had fun trying out different displays. Have a great week.

LOVE Queen Annes lace. Its one of my faves. I picked buckets and buckets from my parents farm where it grows rampant. LOL I filled white baskets by the dozens to use at our wedding. Queen Anne's Lace and white roses. It was beautiful. I need to get some growing in my garden too. Thanks for hosting MM. :)

Hi Mary, I had some carrots go to seed one year and I was surprised to see them flower. It did look a lot like Queens Ann Lace. Thanks for hosting.

Looks like Queen Ann's Lace - which I believe can be deadly! Looks a little like Yarrow too in a way. I have to plant some carrots - it's very pretty!

Thanks for always hosting the link party. I am joining with a little project this week.

Hello Mary,
That's just too cool! It make sense - the Queen's Anne lace has a tap root that looks like a carrot - Love it! I do appreciate you hosting!
Have a blessed week,
Kathy

My husband, being the farmboy that he is, used to call Queen Anne's Lace, "Wild Carrots", Mary. They must be from the same family or something, because they're one in the same or just look amazingly similar! :)
