                  Dear woo,
                  Trust all is well with you and yours.

                  It is fab how id'ing plants is keeping my brain active in these weird days of LOCKDOWN...day 44 for us.
                  All well here in bonnie Scotland.
                  The sunshine over past 6 weeks has been a joy and delight.
                  Never has the garden looked to weed free and tidy.
                  The swallows arrived on 9th April and the sky larks are singing over the fields.
                  Stay safe and well everyone.
                  Cheers
                  S.s

                        I am reading about umbellifers and find them very confusing as they often seem to have very similar flower heads. Would this one be 'Saxifrage?' Rather then keep asking others I have searched on the internet but remain confused by them. Perhaps you can help me once again please.

                        Please may I suggest you start a new thread for each plant.

                        Hmm!
                        Umbellifers are so hard...esp from pics.
                        To even attempt an id I would need more info.
                        Where is plant..UK?
                        Garden, field, wood?
                        Need really clear pics to show flowers.
                        Also one to show leaves and whole plant.
                        Sometimes the stem has clues...smooth or ridged
                        Sometimes seed pods help.
                        Even then they are hard.

                        Silaum silaus ...common name Pepper-saxifrage.

                        Silaum silaus Pepper-saxifrage - - Google Search

                        My wild flower id was rubbish a few years ago...so I went on plant id classes, met experts who could tell me what points to look for. It is hard...even with the plant in front of you...from pics often too hard...esp if pics not sharp/clear.

                          Thank you once again for your assistance. It was in the UK and on a roadside verge but I don't currently have access to the location.
                          However, I am heartened to hear that others can also find these ID's difficult and at least I was on the right track. Thank you for your continued patience and I note your advice re a new thread where appropriate.
