As the weather gets hotter, these wonderful plants start flowering everywhere in Greece. They thrive in the hot dry summers, and there are swathes of them everywhere along the sides of the roads and up in the hills. They sway majestically in the wind and are often adorned with an insect of some sort sitting right in the middle of the huge flower! I know them as Queen Anne’s Lace but I believe they’re also known as ‘Wild Carrot’.
