    this has been growing on the propery since we moved here, it's kind of nice, gets very thick but doesn't try to take over, gets small white flowers in late spring/early summer and usually reaches a hight of 12 inches give or take.

    any ideas as to what it is?

    I'm sorry, the pictures come up so fuzzy for me that I really can't even hazard a guess.

    Small white flowers? Is the ground in a bottomland like near a river or stream?

    Take a look at Honewort, (wild chervil) Cryptotaenia canadensis and see if that looks like your plant.

    Be careful here, the plant that you have looks like it is in the parsley family. The parsley family is notorious for having some great edible plants and some very poisonous ones in it. So be sure of your id before you put anything in your mouth. (for instance, wild carrot and poison hemlock are in the same family)

    This is just a guess, the flower itself would be extremely helpful here.

    Cheers,
