Artist's Description

Queen Anne’s Lace (Daucus carotais)

Queen Anne’s lace, though, is much more than a pretty face. With humans, it has a long, long history as a decorative, medicinal, and food plant. While the livestock don’t care much for Queen Anne’s lace (for example, Queen Anne’s lace is supposedly poisonous to rabbits), the birds eat the seeds, and small songbirds use the waving flower umbels as a song perch. Queen Anne’s lace also attracts and nurtures many, many beneficial insects (so named by farming and gardening humans because the insects are predators that keep other insects in check and/or help out in other ways e.g. by making silk).
