Above is Wild Carrot(aka, bird’s nest or Queen Anne’s Lace ) which is a wild edible plant.  But there are other white flowered plants that look similar that are extremely poisonous (Poison Hemlock(Conium maculatum) or Water Hemlock (Cicuta maculata))so make sure 100% sure before you decide to take a bite. Queen Anne’s Lace is the only plant with a small maroon flower in the center.
