This was one of those, "Stop the car NOW, I've got to get out to take a picture!" flowers. Fortunately, it was in a place where we could stop safely. My cousin's wife, Sara and 12 year-old daughter, Shelly, were used to me saying that to my husband after spending the week with us, so they just laughed! I like the name of this flower, it really does have a pretty face! It looked similar to the Common Goldstar that Sara and I saw in the Pinnacles.
