Queen Anne’s Lace – now a wildflower was brought to the new world as a garden flower. As a kid I enjoyed cutting one putting it in water with food coloring watching the bloom change colors as it took up the water.

    • Many of the common wild flower in the Appalachians were brought to North America as domestics. Queen Ann’s Lace and chicory are predominate ones that come to mind. I am with you I do enjoy them very much many more so that over done domestics – kinda like a French poodle with that strange hair cut or a fun pound dog that loves to follow you every where. Give me the pound puppy any day.
