Soft Popcornflower: The 109th Flower of Spring & Summer!

Soft Popcornflower: The 109th Flower of Spring & Summer!
(please scroll down to see two more pictures!)

Yesterday, one of my wonderful Flickr friends, Jim (JimbobEdsel) left a comment saying that he was surprised I was still finding flowers now that we're in August!! Well, what you may not know is that I'm posting one flower picture every day in order as they were found on my property, and yesterday's flower and today's were both photographed all the way back in MAY!! Now that we're in August, the new flowers have slowed to just one or two every week, but I'm still finding them!! I believe Jim also guessed in an earlier comment that, at this rate, I'll be posting pictures until the end of the year! You know what? He might have been kidding, but I may have pictures that will run through September or even October!! I have many dozens of flowers still to add, and I think the number will be at least 50 more!! I really had NO IDEA there were so many species here!!! It certainly has been a great education too, and a lot of fun to share information about every flower with all of you! :)

This tiny beauty is a type of Popcornflower, and I posted a larger species as #29 in my list of flowers called the Rusty Popcornflower. That fllower blooms in April, but this species blooms in May and grows in just one place, at the edge of our seasonal pond. It grows in a thick carpet of extremely tiny blossoms, each of which are just 1/16" in diameter! These flowers are found in California, Oregon and Nevada where it is wet.
