Lampranthus spectabilis

Lemon Cove, CA, USA, April 6, 2010

Lampranthus is a genus originating in South Africa, but it seems naturalised to southern California too. George was driving and he nearly got a heart attack when I started to yell that we have to stop. I had spoted this magnificent Lampranthus carpet and, despite the fright I caused to him, he lent me his camera, since mine was lost somewhere in my lagage.
