Achyrachaena mollis seedheadBlow-Wives.

Seen on the Aliso Loop trail (near the intersection with Aliso Trail), seeds present in April and May (the seeds are much the more interesting aspect of this flower). Seen flowering in April.

The picture is of the seedhead. The seedhead looks a bit like Silver Puffs, but the seed wings are wider.
