The queen has arrived . . .


Lately I'm relishing in all things pretty, lovely, summery, and white. It just makes me feel good.
















My hope is that you too, are loving summer as well!

Lovely photos! I was wondering how the mason jars in the first photo tied in until I saw the other photos below... :)

Beautiful photos Sharon! I too, like Queen Ann's lace and am enjoying our summer so far. The weather has been perfect the past week or so. Stop by and see our new kitchen I posted about tonight. Blesssings, Pamela

Beautiful photographs!

Laura said...

I saw an entire field of these beauties the other day. It reminded me of when I was young and played Barbies with my friends. We would pick the small blooms for Barbie's bridal bouquet!

I adore Queen Annes Lace, I had some on my table tonight for friends over for dinner. I really enjoy how you vary the graphics so each picture is different but a common theme. The off white frames are great, howsyoudothat??

Mary said...

Simply gorgeous, Sharon! Ours are just beginning to unfold... Last year I was quite caught up in them, especially as they began to fade and turn in upon themselves... This year I think the 50mm will be taking a crack at them. :)

Beautiful photos!

I like the old-fashioned photo look. May I ask where and/or how you did that?

O. Joy said...

Beautiful! She has just made her appearance here, too - feels like summer!

Snappy Di said...

It's beautiful... I don't know that I have noticed any Queen Ann blooming here yet.

But the berries are in full swing!

I'm loving summer but loving your photos even more.

thanks for replying to my earlier comment:) I have bought photoshop but have not opened it yet, I think I need to take an online class. It is so easy to edit in picnik or with my photo processor. I have to bite the bullet and learn photoshop, a little daunting to me. I do not even get how to buy frames and add :(
Again, beautiful post!

Rose West said...

When I was a kid, Queen Anne's Lace was my favorite wildflower - it just seemed so romantic and storybookish to me. Thanks for the beautiful photos!

Carole said...

White is a cooling color and probably why I like it so much. I hesitate to admit this but summer is not my favorite season....except for the flowers I hate the heat that comes with!
Today was a steam fest!

Gorgeous images!!!

Rosie said...

Beautiful...love the look of the Queen Anne's Lace in the canning jars!

Country Girl said...

Gorgeous photos. I love the framing, the processing, and everything about them. Nice!!

Mary said...

I love these! the lacy flowers are so delicate. I stopped looking at these as weeds as soon as I got my macro lens last year. The bottles are awesome. I really want to start a collection but I don't really have the right type of windows...

Kerri said...

Royally Exquisite!

Lynda said...

These are beautiful Sharon! I love Queen Anne's Lace and just noticed today that it's starting to bloom here. :)

Elaine said...

A treat for the eyes! Love all of your photos and the frames. So romantic!

Judy said...

Wonderful series of photos of the QAL!! One of my summer favourites, too! My favourite shot is the window full of canning jars, though!
