Season's Greetings To All:
Of the Califronia natives, my favorite is Triteleia lilacina. It is
diminutive, but it is one of those flowers that is pure magic if you take
out a magnifying glass or a hand lens and peer inside. Blue anthers form a
crown around hundreds of irridescent glass beads that encircle the blossom.
It needs to be seen up close, in the sunshine to fully appreciate.
