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!!

What do you think, Ashish? I am frustrated in my search for an ID, so I wish you luck, friend.
