We use to call Queen Ann's lace - Chigger plants. My cousin was convinced that they had chiggers and would make me look really close to see. Every time I see one of them I think of my cousin, as a little girl looking very hard and with a certian amount of disdain,at the Queen Ann's Lace. Poor little cousin she did hate chiggers! Of course to prove her point there were always little bright red bugs on them, not to mention Queen Ann's drop of blood from a tatting injury in the center.

. I am also very familiar with poison hemlock. I have spent the last five years trying to get them all killed out from the edge of our hayfield. They are like 10 feet tall compared to the little bitty, knee high, chigger plant! It was a good article, I enjoyed it.. Thanks for a great article that took me back to my childhood.
