Artist's Description

Spring landscape – Lane with ‘all seeing’ silver poplars and Fluitenkruid (Cow Parsley)
Diemerbos (Diemen woods), Diemen near Amsterdam SouthEast, Netherlands
Copyright © 2012 Steppeland – All rights reserved

Diemerbos (Diemen woods) on a beautiful, hazy spring morning… A lane of White Poplars ( Populus alba, also known as abele, silver poplar, or silverleaf poplar, Wikipedia ) – Or is it Common Aspen? – lined by an abundance of Cow Parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris Wikipedia)
Cow Parsley, in Dutch ‘Fluitenkruid’, also known as Wild Chervil, Wild Beaked Parsley, Keck, or Queen Anne’s lace is such a typical May weed… It flowers in abundance along the sides of roads, paths, dikes and rivers here in the Netherlands – and definitely makes May to the most flower rich month of the year! When the Fluitenkruid is flowering, it makes not only the May Fairies dance, but my heart too! :)
