Default A good year for cow parsley?

Enormous swathes of it in the verges and paths this year - the first
time I've ever noticed it having a scent.

Is this just local (Cambs) or is it nationwide?

It is always there - a perpetual road hazard
I've just mowed back about 40 yards to try and regain visibility exiting
my drive and may take a strimmer to more

Whether it is more this year than last I can not not say - the very wet
weather and the sudden increase in temperature has been like a starting
pistol to most weeds...

We can smell many things only on warm, sunny, calm days at exactly
the right time of flowering; it always has had a scent. There may
be more of it around here than in most places, but it's very common.
Yes, it's a good year for it.

Tell me about it, end of march/start of april I'd got my field/building
plot pretty well clear of weeds, then for $VARIOUS reasons haven't been
able to visit at all, the weeds have gone apeshit, I went through half a
dozen batteries and four spools of line on the brush cutter, still
trying to convince myself that I did over 1/3 of it, but in reality I
doubt I even did 1/4.

Not much cow parsley though ...
