“Seeds Galore” – Queen Anne’s Lace
“I have always been caught by the pull of the unremarkable, by the easily missed, infinitely nourishing beauty of the mundane.”
― Tana French
A theme that keeps coming back to me is how much detail and beauty there is in mundane things. Generally, when Queen Anne’s Lace finishes blooming, I hardly notice them, until winter when the basket-like heads get coated in little snow ‘hats’.
It was not till I was composing this mage, that I noticed just how intricate the seeds of this common wildflower really are. The seeds look like multi-legged insects attacking the plant. Simply fascinating to look at and not lost in the background with this black background. So, have a look yourself, next time you are strolling along a path, you’ll never see it the same way again.
