Species Spotlight: Anthriscus Sylvestris

Today I went for a walk around the Somersham Lake and the nearby woodlands.  Loads of wild flowers are coming into bloom and the whole area has a magical feel that makes you feel like the whole area is alive!

The most common plant I found was this one, which is anthriscus sylvestris, otherwise known as cow parsley.  There is loads of it around this area at the moment.  I think the flowers look so delicate, probably why one its other names is Queen Anne’s Lace!
