Cow Celery

As the warm rays of sun warm the earth in springtime, the flower emerges looking a lot like a giant fQueen Ann's Lace flower. When the summer nears its end, the flowers turn into green seeds with a very pungent smell to them. Old folk lure claims the seeds were used for tea to prevent sea sickness.
