Sarah Snaps so I can Nap

A perfect spring morning in Sisar Canyon.  I’m busily tending to my propagative duties while new superintern Sarah mans the SLR.  She scores some rare blooms, some FBOTS (first bloom of the season) and even a new mystery plant for you eager ID hounds.  No lumbering giant like last week’s tree of heaven, this is a delicate tiny white bloom weaving it’s way through the poppies with little coin purse seed pods.  A heartfelt huzzah to the first reader who can help figure this one out.

    I believe your mystery plant is Peppergrass, Lepidium nitidum, a native, distinguished from the non-native Shepherd’s Purse, Capsella bursa-pastoris, by the latter’s triangular seed pods. Your other mustard might be Hedge Mustard but don’t quote me on that.
