More Scalebud

Anisocoma acaulis – March 20, 2014

Midday, while changing my irrigation water, I checked on the Scalebud. No pastel yellow patch, only orangish Pincushions that always look the same. On my way back, I investigated to find that most of the flat flowers that I photographed two days ago Scalebud were gone, only to be replaced with more buds. Not hard to figure how this wildflower got its name.

Nor why it’s of the same family as dandelions, ASTERACEAE.

With such a short bloom period, I may have missed these interesting wildflowers for years.
