Reading up on the some of the Wildflowers I saw in Wisconsin, I found Queen Anne’s Lace interesting.  Member of the parsley family and the mother of our carrot, this wild version was brought from Europe.  This biennial provides nectar for many pollinators and food for the caterpillar of the Eastern Black Swallowtail.  Considered an invasive weed in many states, yet the lacy umbels of flowers and the “bird’s nest” it forms after flowering are simply beautiful.
