I've just posted some new pictures, plus additional cultural information
Queen Anne's Lace or wild carrot is a biennial. Plant the seeds this summer and they bloom next summer. A non native exotic, Queen Anne's Lace is not necessarily a politicaly correct addition to your wildflower meadow. On the positive side, Queen Anne's Lace does have the small florets which are important for attracting several species of beneficial insects to the organic garden.
Queen Anne's lace is also an important host plant of the black swallowtail butterfly.
