This makes me wonder whether the dill growing along Seattle's waterfront
has hybridized with the water hemlock which also grows there.  Although
they may not be closely enough related for that to work.  however the
possibility is interesting....not sure I'd want to test it though! I've
also seen wild carrot there, could make for an interesting salad, eh?
