Wildflowers in the city brighten litter piles and granite block walls with their cheerful presence. Uninvited, their roots anchoring them in the inadvertent dirt of the slightest of cracks, they sneak a little country into disregarded urban spaces. I’ve loved Queen Anne’s Lace since I was a little girl, growing up in a small town. And every time I see it now in the nooks and crannies of my city it brings a childhood grin back to my face.
