the queen and her ladies

Guinevere of the royal court of Arthur
Draped in white velvet, silk and lace.
The rustle of her gown on the marble staircase,
Sparkles on fingers, slender and pale.

  1. Queen Anne’s lace is a favorite of mine. It grew wild and plentiful where I grew up. Your beautiful photographs remind me of why why I love it so much!!

  2. These are especially pretty and I enjoyed the accompanying poem.

  3. I think it was one of the very first flowers I ever learned to identify. Beautiful post.

  4. I love that second image, so soft and dreamy and the one with the two ladybirds meeting up of delicate white flowers!

  5. You’ve taken the beauty of Queen Anne’s Lace above any I’ve seen!! I LOVE this post Susan! Stunning work!

  6. Beautiful photos!
    Greetings from sunny Warsaw. Feel free to watch the new collection of photos in the album β€˜Roses’

  7. Oh, what a beautiful take on Queen Anne’s Lace! I love seeing it on roadsides and along highways – back east, one of may favorite combinations was Queen Anne’s Lace mixed with that gorgeous mid-blue of chicory, about this time of year, yes? Out here we have Queen Anne’s Lace but I haven’t see chicory. The two lady bugs really top it off – very romantic and sweet. And the second one is so artfully composed – just perfect!

  8. Omg ..Susan you have such a unique way of presenting things… These are wonderful…. Ordinary weeds made so beautiful, your talent exceeds anything or anyone I know.
