There are no weeds in God’s garden. Every plant that brings forth a blossom is beautiful in its own right. The exquisite design of the common weed, Queen Anne’s Lace, is an intricate combination of tiny blossoms that come together to form the “head” of the plant.
Queen Anne’s Lace is also known as “Wild Carrot.” The juice of the root can help sooth itchy skin. The roots are also rich in Vitamin A. It is said to have been introduced into the United States from Europe where it was a very popular plant during the reign of Queen Anne.
According to information I read on the web, the large taproot of the plant can be eaten and is much like the carrots we eat – perhaps and ancestor.
Even a plant considered to be only a weed that springs up in ditches, fields, and along roadsides has value, beauty, and purpose.
