Budding Queen Anne's Lace, Daucus carota. 169/365
Other names include wild carrot and bishop's lace. A flowering plant, native to Europe and southwest Asia and naturalized in North America. It grows between 1-2 feet tall, and blooms into a cluster of tiny white flowers in dense umbrels.
Each Queen Anne's lace plant lives for two years. During its first year it forms a flat leafy rosette close to the ground, and produces no stems or flowers. During the second year a long branched stem topped with flowers appears. Then as autumn approaches Queen Anne's lace plants release their many small seeds and die.
