Anyone know what this teeny flower growing among my wildflowers could be? I didn't plant it, don't really like it, but will tolerate it if it attracts bees.

The white flowers are so small, (sesame seed size) that my camera can't even focus on it. But, where you see white, there is about 25 flowers in a cluster.

tk, can you take a sideways picture showing the growth habit? Are the flowers in umbels - can't really tell from the picture.

Some type of Umbell (Umbellaceae). Need to see a clear photo of the flowers.

It reminds me of "Cicely":

Clayton's Sweetroot (Osmorhiza claytonii)

it actually looks better in the picture than in the garden as the flowers are so tiny

It somewhat resembles Chaerophyllum tainturieri, but I'm really not 100% on it:

Sue, the blooms do look a lot like Southern Chervil (Chaerophyllum tainturieri). @texaxkitty111 You can view more close-up photos for comparison here: http://missouriplants.com/Whitealt/Chaerophyllum_tainturieri...
