Two Wild Carrots

I like the name of this flower very much. The juxtaposition of the words wild and carrot make me smile. A carrot, but a dangerous and unpredictable one!

From wikipedia:

"Daucus carota, whose common names include wild carrot, bird's nest, bishop's lace, and Queen Anne's lace (North America), is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native to temperate regions of Europe, southwest Asia and naturalized to North America and Australia. Domesticated carrots are cultivars of a subspecies, Daucus carota subsp. sativus."
