The Queen Anne’s Lace flower has always been a popular with us - and it is no surprise because who was more Queenly than the playful Queen Anne herself.
Known for her fair and just heart, Queen Anne of Denmark was known to be a fierce and independent woman of substance.
A woman who led her childhood in complete isolation, grew up to be empathetic and set the some of the biggest housing boards for her country.
Also known for her patronage for the arts, one of the Victorian 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 centre of Queen Anne’s Lace represents a droplet of her blood.
Also called Wild Carrot (since Queen Anne’s Lace is the wild ancestor of today’s carrot), Bishop’s Lace or Bird’s Nest (for the nest-like appearance of the bright white and rounded flower in full bloom), in the language of flowers, Queen Anne’s Lace represents sanctuary.
