umbel season has arrived!

umbel season has arrived!

have i mentioned my fascination and affection for umbels? yeah, well, umbels are a personal favorite, and umbel season is beginning. umbellules, umbellets, umbellates, subumbellates, and of course umbelliforms. compound umbels, simple umbels, primary umbels, secondary umbels. a mother is supposed to say she loves all of her children equally. and i really do love all of my umbellate children just exactly the same. except i love wild carrot (queen anne’s lace) just a little bit more.

    I’ll second that! Umbiliferous (is that a word?) flowers are the best!!
