Wonderful smelling stuff; but marked for destruction in the Pepperwood habitat restoration plans. To be sure, the vernal pools it was flourishing in were dried up to the point that no satisfactory extirpation was possible. The clumps were bracketed by beautiful webs of golden orb spiders. These were fat and sassy; with numerous bulging egg cases hanging nearby.
Hundreds of these fled before our steps in the dried grass on the way to some dried vernal pools where we were clearing pennyroyal. This one posed for me only after hopping into the web of a golden orb spider.
