We were late harvesting our carrots last year and in the end I left a few to go to seed. I've cleared that area of the garden now and a few of the plants are in a pile waiting for the shredder, including this one. I've used a layer from the inside of a saucepan amongst others here - seemed to link well with carrots !!!
Enjoy Smile

Carrots and saucepans certainly do go together, in more ways than one, as this image proves. I have only ever seen wild carrot flower and go to seed, but this looks just like that, suppose I shouldn't really be surprised.

Great texturing, Helen. The head down pov emphasises the fact that it is beyond its sell-by date and yesterday's carrott plant.
