Thanks Ashish!! I have been working on a big paper and my email was backed up!! I just saw your comment. I use a Nikon Cool Pix for this photo. Oh also use a small Cannon but the pictures are blurry, but I can put the Cannon in my pocket. I will take your suggestions and look again for ID under Apiaceae or Asteraceae. Thanks auntnance123 for the suggestion but it does not look the same as my plant. Happy Thanksgiving!!
