My dad sent me this photo of a plant that has appeared for a second year in an abandoned swimming pool on his property in eastern Tennessee. He said it reminded him of dill plants, and I thought fennel, but apparently there is no distinctive smell when the plant is crushed. Happy to provide more details if needed, just not sure what else to use to describe it. Since it’s in the pool, it obviously can tolerate a certain amount of having its feet wet! Thanks!
