Always liked QAL, and cannot see it without Bobby D's words coming to mind:
"Purple clover, queen anne's lace,
crimson hair across her face..."
Great shot.

Makes me think of my carrots that went to seed this year. I've never left them in the ground for two years so I was surprised at how big they got and how beautiful the flowers were. - Margy
