BUSYBEE is having problems uploading pictures to the site, and so I am posting this for her.

She writes:
"This plant survived the winter and is now full of buds. This flower took a long time to open and is as large as a snack plate. I thought it was parsley but I am afraid to taste it. The tallest flower stem is 5 feet." Can anyone identify this plant?

Could it be Queen Anne's Lace? Just a guess. I'm not good at doing the ID thing.

That is what I thought also, has fern type leaves, smells somewhat like carrot tops, not unpleasant smell, but would not want to eat it.

Yes - queen anne's lace - Daucas carota http://www.auburn.edu/~deancar/wfnotes/q_a_lace.htm The say the dark red spot in the center is from a drop of Queen Anne's blood... she pricked her finger sowing the lace :)

Thanks to all of you. This had to have come in a pack of wildflower seed. Now I can stop worring about it. Sure glad I didn`t cut the leaves and dehidrate for parsley.LOL
Thanks to Jean who posted this for me. I still can`t get a photo on here or on the photos forum.
