Prejudices "Legend has it that Queen Anne, the wife of King James I, was challenged by her friends to create lace as beautiful as a flower. While making the lace, she pricked her finger, and it’s said that the purple-red flower in the center of Queen Anne’s Lace represents a droplet of her blood. Queen Anne’s Lace represents sanctuary, magic, trust, healing and steadfast love."~google search~ Pretty amazing history since this delicate flower is considered by many to be a roadside weed. For years I fought them back trying to control their vivacious appetite for space. I finally came to realize that mixed with my treasured hydrangeas they made the most beautiful filler flower. My arrangements took on that wispy feel that I so love. I then began to cultivate them appreciating them for who they are, my prejudices against them all but vanished. Once considered a weed, a general train of thought, was now my reliable and trusted friend, that made my arrangements whole. I do believe that looking beyond what we are told, experiencing for ourselves, other than what is perceived to be, can lead to extraordinary and lasting relationships, for any species! A little sanctuary in our hearts to store magic, trust and some healing love! Such a noble flower!
