No problem, Martin :) Yes, there are a lot of very similar looking plants out there, but your close up of the flowers really helped! Cow parsley has five petals on the flower, with one being bigger than the others. That's really helpful in IDing it from other similar plants. It's really clear in your photo!

I love these plants :) They're called cow's parsley in the UK, the scientific name is Anthriscus sylvestris. These are great close up shots of those delicate little flowers!
