A delicate umbellifer
A delicate umbellifer
This is either Corn Parsley, Petroselinum segetum, or Stone Parsley, Sison amomum, both not often come across, but here prolific by a bridleway. These plants are in early flower, but the umbels are few-flowered anyway. I thought at first Corn Parsley, but have now veered towards the other, on looking them up. I rolled a picking between my fingers and the smell was oily rather than parsley-like, which indicates Stone Parsley.
