Even More Blooming Now!

Like the yellow-orange Fiddleneck, this is another reliable bloomer in the Borage Family (Boraginaceae). It's probably Chryptantha barbigera (Bearded Cryptantha), but the Chryptantha species are hard to tell apart. If you'd like, call these tiny white ones Popcorn Flowers. Look along the road, on the Bluff trail, on the Esperero trail.

Many plants in the Mustard Family (Brassicaceae) are blooming now, including the Lace Pod Mustard (Thysanocarpus curvipes). The white flowers (see link) and the seedpods (pictured above) are VERY tiny, but the seedpods are definitely worth a closer look. If you see a tiny white flower, stop and inspect.
