Elderberry Plants in bloom
These line the trail up to Yellow Gap, and are also all over in the adjacent meadow. Standing about 5 feet tall, they totally surround you with blossoms! June 21, 2014.

You know Bernie ... I always confuse Queen Anne's Lace and Elderberry, but my (very limited) understanding is that Elderberry plants are much, much taller and larger than Queen Anne's Lace. These plants were about 5 feet tall.
Daucus carota; perhaps? (Queen Anne's Lace)
Ooh, I like this! Very creative perspective!
