I just caught up with my newsletter and I was happy to read about QAL. I love this plant and have included it in my poems about my garden. I have crocheted the lace in baby blankets and I love history, to know which Anne the lace belongs to was great to me. Thanks, it brought a smile to my face.
PS didnt know about it being a carrot, have only cut the flowers from the road side around our yard, now I know why it smells that way!
Thank you nocows! I very much enjoyed learning more about QAL while writing the article, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Which Anne does the name belong to? I also read that the Queen Anne part is an American legend, not British at all. Or I guess I should say, a Colonist legend, not an English one? Confusing... But a lovely flower and a great fragrance!
