Thanks for the web reference. Wild carrot indeed. Would one find a carrot attached ?

Yes...but don't expect it to be orange or as large!

Links provided other illuminating facts: Very similar in appearance to poison hemlock, and has been used as a contraceptive for centuries !

The Wild Carrot is the "mother" of the cultivated carrot that we know today. The edible wild carrot or Queen Ann's Lace has "hairy" stems...the deadly Poison Hemlock DOES NOT have "hairy" stems. (remember the queen has hairy legs and that will help you to remember that the Queen Ann's Lace is the safe one ) The flower heads are different too, the Poison Hemlock is much more open whereas the wild carrot flower head is "tight".

Am I wrong, or does poison hemlock also have purple spots on the stems?

It is invasive in my garden, and it's a shame because it is a lovely flower. I cannot resist sticking them in a vase before I rip them out of soil.

If you stick the bloom stem in colored water, the white flower head will become same color as the water...
