Mr. and Mrs. were waiting for me a the car!
A little field of it!
Another sample to show the under side of the petals.
I am not sure at all about this one. it could be a Phacelia although others are already done blooming and drying up. What do you think?
I will post a few pictures to show the hard work of those critters.
I could be mistaken but the various pseudognaphalium species, here, do not seem to bloom at the same time.
This one has sticky green leaves on both sides (versus a lighter green on the under side or a lighter stem) and it has a wonderful aroma of maple syrup too!
The are getting taller 50 cm to a meter.
I realize I have posted a lot of those but the shots are getting clearer, it seems.
Very busy on California Buckwheat, right now.
Smaller than 1 cm
Those drive me crazy! Do they ever sit still? I got the male and female in the first and second shot here though.
They seem to enjoy watercress (Nasturtium officinale).

Resembles salvia mellifera but the leaves are greyer, less "wrinkled" and the scent is much more pleasant to me.
Also by the seasonal creek.
Growing near a seasonal creek.
