Cow Parsley or Hogweed
Cow Parsley is a flower of roadsides, fields and woodland. The delicate white flowers are like lace decorating the grass, so they are also known as "Queen Anne's Lace". At this time of year they line country lanes and bow as cars pass. We have plenty at Filnore - Cow Parsley plants, I mean, not cars.
The more chunky Hogweed flowers are much more robust. They bloom all throught the summer and even in winter a few brave hogweeds continue to flower.
