Episode 4! Queen Anne's Lace

Hello and how are you!

This week my spectacular cohort and cousin Amelia and I went out into the field in search of the Non-Native plant, Queen Anne's Lace (also known as the wild carrot!!). We were lucky enough to find this wildflower sprinkled like fairy dust or powdered sugar on a lovely little trail. It was a beautiful day filming. In fact, it kind of felt like something straight out of a disney movie, the way we were skipping through the wildflowers, and pausing to hear the birds chirp every now and then. At points I swore they were actually singing a song together! Anyway, I learned a lot this week and certainly enjoyed making this video. I hope you enjoy the show too!

The Wild Carrot,

This video is a great addition to your video blog series! I enjoy how you took the time to look at a non-native species. It is important for people to understand that not all foreigners are bad, if you know what I mean! I also enjoy how you included a bit of history in your discussion of Queen Anne's Lace. It is definitely a beautiful flower!

Congrats on another great video!

I can't wait for the next one,
