Anne and Queen Anne's Lace

ANNE: Some girls in books lose their hair in fevers or sell it for money for some good deed. I'm sure I wouldn't have minded losing my hair like that. There's nothing comforting in having your hair cut off because you dyed it.
DIANA: This is the very last of the Queen Anne's Lace for the summer. Don't worry about your hair. No one even notices it anymore.
(Quote from the script written from Anne of Green Gables.)

All of the photos below were taken on Prince Edward Island where Anne of Green Gables was written.

I hope you enjoyed our little island...It's quite lovely, isn't it? (we, here in Atlantic Canada, take pride of ownership of each of the other east coast provinces.)

I gave my granddaughter the complete Anne last summer and she didn't put them away until she finished. Great photos!

We were looking at various plants of this family and wondering which one was Queen Anne's Lace. Thank you for enlightening me ! It's really pretty close up, too.

Talk about butterfly heaven. Is that the name of the flower?

The photos are lovely and it's my daughters favorite flower. I have a big field of it out front. I've just been told that deer ticks love it. I'm about to mow that field.
