In early June, my husband and I drove through Oregon's spectacular Columbia Gorge. We crossed the Bridge of the Gods to the Washington side. On our way back home we stopped to watch the restless waters and wander through Stevenson's lush wonderland parks.
Though it was late in the season I found Fairy's Lace in full bloom. This delightful native bush flowers in early spring. As a child I looked forward to signs of spring after the long dreary winter. Violets, May flowers, Johnny Jumpups and Faery's lace were heralds of warmer days to come.
One can see why faeries might want to wear these delicate flowerings as lace.
