common goldenstar ~ 06/09/11 ~ Pinnacles

common goldenstar
Bloomeria crocea
Themidaceae (aka Asparagaceae and formerly Liliaceae)

When I took this picture, I thought it was coast pretty face, aka golden brodiaea (Triteleia ixioides ssp. ixioides), which is commonly found near home at Fort Ord and Garland Ranch. Nope. Just goes to remind me to take a closer look and to not assume what I see at home is what I see even one county away.
