Friday Flora

It's getting to the peak of wildflower season out here in California. We haven't been out to see much of them, on account of all the excitement with moving and such, but fortunately we have some wildflowers in our backyard. Here's the exceedingly common but still very nice blue eyed grass:
And something more exotic--White Blue eyed grass, from my Mom's garden (which is better than yours):Blue eyed grass is close to being a weed--the flowers in the first picture are a volunteer plant that sprang up in a crack in the pavement in our yard. It's actually a member of the iris family. In addition to the blue and the white varieties, there's a yellow variety (I suppose it has hepatitis, or is perhaps related to the Cmdr Data on Star Trek).
