Summer is nearing its halfway point. The carotte sauvage (wild carrot or Queen Anne's Lace) is in full bloom. I associate the plant with late summer, but it's here now. I hope that's not a sign that summer will end early.
Some of the flowers form a ball shape. The small red flower at center attracts insects.

Living outside of Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher since 2003. You'll find here pictures and descriptions of our life in rural France, some travels, and other stuff about me, my husband Ken, our dog Callie, and our cat Bertie.
