Two Early Bloomers

California Poppy

Statice [?]
Straying a bit off the paved path today, I happened on what looked to me like the first California Poppy to bloom since the rains, and next to it a fresh pink-purple blossoming of a plant that I think is some kind of statice, Limonium sinuatum.  If I’ve got that wrong, please don’t hesitate to correct me.  I know that flowerings on this modest and almost invisible scale aren’t a big deal, but in Cesar Chavez Park any little bit of color that isn’t a thistle is cause for celebration.  OK, even a thistle?
