QUEEN ANNE´S

lace

flowers and legends

           The legend says that Queen Anne, wife of King James I, was defied by her friends to create a lace as beautiful as a flower. As she did it, she pinched a finger, and it is said that the purple-reddish flower in the middle of the lace represents a drop of her blood.

 

Also known as Bishop’s Lace or Bird’s Nest, because of its white flower’s appearance similar to a nest, when it’s in bloom. In the flower’s language, “Queen Anne’s Lace” symbolizes “sanctuary”, a place that offers safety and protection.
