fuchsia-flowered gooseberry
Ribes speciosum

Finally, a native wildflower! Apparently, gooseberries are edible... if you can get past the spiny fruit. For a nice blog post of eating gooseberries (note: not the same species as shown above), check out Rooted in California.

Thanks for the mention. And they are definitely worth the pricked fingers.
