Kind of dry, and dead...
found in Willow Forest at Hahamongna Watershed Park
Ouch, this plant stabbed me through the ziploc bag I held it in. Anyway, we found these species growing out of the sandy banks of the Hahamongna wash.
In ancient Greek mythology, ambrosia (Greek: ἀμβροσία) is sometimes the food or drink of the Greek gods (or demigods), often depicted as conferring ageless immortality upon whoever consumed it. It was brought to the gods in Olympus by doves, so it may have been thought of in the Homeric tradition as a kind of divine exhalation of the Earth.
