Queen Ann's Lace

Daucus carota, commonly know as Queen Ann's Lace is actually a wild carrot. The blossom does resemble lace, and if you look closely you will see one small flower in the center that has a deep red tint. The story goes that Queen Ann pricked herself with the needle while making the lace.

What I think is interesting is the overall form of the blossom is almost a hexagon.
