The Clay Mariposa

Calichortus argillosus

Come on, how ridiculous is this flower, It's like a very talented artist decided to muck about with a paintbrush inside a cup.
from Contra Costa (I love that name, I think it's a bastard of Indian and Spanish)and San Benito county, said to grow in compacted, heavy clays. This species hasn't increased well for me, so I might give it a heavier soil next year....seems my general bulb mix might not be suitable as a clay substitute.

Beautiful evening for the last day of the kiddo's softball season and now she is on Summer break....Oh Ya and since "Public works so you don't have too"....It's also public works day and I'm a public worker.

Cheers,

Mark
