Janet this thing did not have all that many leaves to start with just one stalk with flower and maybe two or three leaves. I have cropped the picture, in it you will see a few mint type leaves which belong to it.

Arif.

Thanks Arif, I have cropped your cropped photo even more, altered the lighting and blew it up to a bigger size. I think the tall stems with triangular shaped leaves which are cut at the end is the plant we are looking at and if most likely in the family Apiaceae.

Cannot find Petroselinum even though I like the leaf structure but found Apium.

Even though we have this Genus but Tropicos is silent. Some day I will post http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eryngium unless there is a name change involved. Sea Holly Shrug! .

Pastinaca I cannot find unless again a name change has occurred.

Above is my rough work. Janet can we narrow it down a bit? Confused

I used the key for Umbelliferae on Flora Pakistan, got to #11 where you need to see the fruits for both options. So I started to go through the Genera from there, got to Pleurospermum and found one in a google with similar leaves so the species you have could be checked out, if none fit then try the other genera below #11.
