Favourite Umbellifers

I can't believe how quickly the summer is going, already I can feel hints of autumn in the air. The meadows are fading but it's still possible to find little beauties in the fields. Of all the Umbellifers I think this one is my favourite. Some people call them Wild Carrot, some Queen Anne's Lace or Bishop's Lace. They appear later in the summer and form these huge buds whilst the seeds develop. I love the delicate pattern and the spiky frill under the flower.
