Summer Snowflake

As you can see the Queen Anne's Lace is progressing nicely. I love it at this stage because the season is hot and humid outside but it reminds me of a summer snowflake, all white an delicate. The intricate structure of the flower, the tiny blossoms all opening up at the same time - just glorious! I would imagine it gets its name because of the lacy edge the flower head has when it is blooming.
