Cow parsley

Here in Sussex - and, for all I know, across much of the rest of England - this is the start of the cow parsley season.  Parts of the wooded area at the top of Withdean Park are almost smothered by the plant with its white flowers and lacy leaves.  I always think of the scent as being nutty, it's certainly not sweet, but it is an aroma I like.

I think it makes an attractive picture when silhouetted against the dying sun.

That's a stunning photo BP! It's cow parsley season here in Somerset too - it's everywhere and one of my favourite things, so pretty and it smells of Summer.
