Grass-of-Parnassus revisit

Grass-of-Parnassus and glaucous white lettuce often hang out together.  This shot of g-o-P was taken right after the lettuce, and seemed worth revisiting here.  These inch wide flowers pop up on naked stems maybe six to twelve inches high.  When I'm done here, I'm going for a stroll at Ives to show off some of this stuff.  It's short notice, but if you can, join us.  10 am, first drive to the east off Raisin Center Hwy., south of the corner with Ives Rd.

Grass-of-Parnassus and glaucous white lettuce.  Some plant names are mouthfuls!  Can you be glaucous and white at the same time?  If gray fuzz makes you glaucous, I guess I am!  Or at least glaucous and bald all at once.
