    It looks similar to some we had in Idaho with the same name. The ones there were a dark purple like a huckleberry (blueberry), but they did not have the nice tangy flavor that a huckleberry has. if I remember right, they had pretty pink blossoms in the springtime.
    We ate them, and I think that you could probably also make juice or jam from the berries, and maybe even a red dye if you wanted to.
    They just had a really “blah” taste to them, so even though we picked and ate the service berries, they were never a favorite of mine.

      Hi, Old Geezer. I think the flowers in the photo are daisies.
      I recently saw something that looked like Q. A. Lace (to me) from a distance. I had never seen the poison hemlock, but I'm pretty sure it was not Q.A. Lace.

    I am absolutely certain. They are not daisies.

    I've dug these things / pulled them up, then took out my knife to scrape them & smell them. They are wild carrots. I guess the name is Queen Ann's lace. The smell is overwhelmingly that of carrots. They are everywhere here and where I grew up. My paternal grandmother, may God's Light be eternally upon her, was one to pick/dig herbs and she took me with her when I was but a wee little boy.

    As I sit here, in this room, in my desk, in my dad's toolbox, I still have my pocket knives from grammar school, >55 yrs ago. As a child, I always had a pocket knife and Zippo lighter on me. I often had chemical burns on the front of my legs from the naphtha lighter fluid. As a child and even now, while at home, I've always been but a few steps from guns and coal and kerosene and firewood and ammunition and tools and repair items and home-canned food, ..., all manner of things that are today referred to as "survival items". I paid no attention. Things are as they are.

    I'm sitting here, I am in my memories, I am on my grandmother's screened-in back porch. The frame wall is covered in herbs and peppers, sewn peppers, sewn beans drying. Sauerkraut is working in huge tubs on a long bench. All these smells are right now in my head. And the gardens and the apple trees and the cherry trees, colors, life, bounties. Car tires are crunching through the gravel and coal clinkers; somebody is coming in, driving up the driveway. Who will it be? Are they coming for me? I hope so.

    The reason I thought it was daisies is because it looks more like petals to me in the photo, not the laciness of Queen Ann flowers. I see points. The round buds look to me like daisy heads. I have grown daisies many years and enjoyed the view of fields full of Q.A. Lace flowers and picked them for vases of wild flowers, I do know the difference between the two. The foliage in the photo is more akin to qa lace and hemlock than daisies tho.
    Perhaps on a larger screen I could more easily see the difference.
    In real life I wouldn't just introduce myself to introduce myself.
    Thank you for the welcome, Grizz.
