|Mystery flower. About 0.5" (1.3 cm) across.|
This time of year a particular flower blooms all over the Valley. You can see it everywhere--open fields, roadsides, anyplace where there's not a lot of water and relatively untended land.
Imagine yourself the parent of a child who comes in carrying this flower, with one half-eaten hanging from her mouth.
What should you do?
Today's search challenge is fairly simple:
1. What is this plant?
2. Is it poisonous or not?
Since it's a simple enough question, be SURE to time yourself this week. How long would it take you to find the answer?
Let us know in the comments below. Be sure to say HOW you found the answer, and how LONG you took to figure out if your daughter needs to go to the emergency center or not.
Search on. Quickly!!

P.S. Extra credit, for those of you who found this too easy... Can you find evidence of ways it was used in early California?
