Celebrating the return of the Queen

May 25


Today's challenge... "Celebration". We are also celebrating the birthdays of two
participants (Lee & Bev). HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU TWO!!! I joyfully celebrate the
return of the Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota) and it's long-lived display each
year. Long live the Queen (and Lee and Bev) :)

A couple of Roses for me lady on her B'day ;)

On this special day, I'll link to the b'day pair where you will find the others participating...
