Began growing in late Fall, survived the Western Washington winter, and has taken over the pot. Nothing we ever planted...assume was transported there by critter or nature. Thank You!

Maybe Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota) ?

The stems are smooth and I see purple spots - Poison Hemlock. These two plants are very similar in appearance but one is edible and one will kill you and they both live equally well on the west coast.

Here is a Washington State link for you on Poison Hemlock. It's not a nice plant.
Edited to re attach missing link.

I somehow must have not clicked right when I attached the link before.
