View Full Version : The Roadside Decorations

I see the change of umbelliferous plants along the roadside. Up to now Sweet Cicely (Myrrhis odorata) has been prominent, with light green downy leaves finely divided. Now Cow Parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris) is coming into flower and its mid green finely divided leaves taking over. There is lots of Cow Parsley, so it will dominate many roadsides in the next week or so.

I like the dandelions; their bright cheerful faces are a joy to see....;)
