After further review of the plant and flowers I have confirmed it is poison hemlock.

Scott County, KY(Zone 5b)

I think your review/confirmation is incorrect. That is NOT Poison Hemlock - Conium maculatum.

That plant is Queen Anne's Lace - Daucus carota.

Your plant clearly has the hairy stems, which indicates Daucus sp. This species blooms in summer months.

Poison Hemlock will have glabrous (smooth) stems which are often speckled. It blooms late spring.
