This is one of my favorite little magical flowers of California. Big, showy poppies are fabulous, but something about the anthers on baby blue-eyes just makes me get down on my belly and stare at them.

I agree with the above comment
this is a mesmerizing plant (at least on me)
it's incredible that the pictures here are under some rights reserved license.

If you want people to get interested I suggest you post all the info. you can find because people always want to learn more. This is a very beutiful and interesting flower!!

I agree with my brother. We both love plants.
