    Alice,


    Could it be English Yew? Does it feel like a shrub?

      It feels like almost like a fern. I'll Google English Yew and compare. Thank you, OceeB!!

    It looks like something in the carrot family, such as parsnip, angellica, wild carrot, sweet cicily, or wild carrot or biscuitroot. There is a chance it is Poison Hemlock.

    Before you freak out, look at the stem. If it has tiny hairs it is safe. If it is hairless, smooth and has purple blotches, remove it using gloves or a shovel. Wrap it in something and toss it in the trash. The purple blotches and lack of hairs are the best way to identify PH. PH will also grow to be several feet tall, but many others will as well. There are differences in the leaf pattern, but I can't describe it.

    If it's a volunteer, and you like it, keep it. These are mostly all bi-ennials. This looks like the first year's growth. The first year these grow low to the ground. In the second they spring up and produce flowers.

      Too late. I already kind of freaked out - just a little LOL! Clearly I need to look closer and try and identify it following your suggestions. Thank you so much, Ann!

    Best bet, would be to go to the local nursery, with a photo.

    Spruce tree

    Oh! It should probably not be a pot then. Thank you, Nancy!

    If you have a cell phone there is an app you can put on it PLANT IDENTIFIER to snap a photo of the plant and it suggests what it is. I love using it!

    Wow! Thank you, Kelly-n-Tony! I had no idea.

    Looks like a juniper bush/shrub.
