Avoiding mandatory housework today, I ventured into the hills to see what I could see. I stumbled upon a flow I had never seen before, but which appears to be some species of Calochortus (Mariposa Lily) It was difficult to get a "facial" shot of these little lilies by the dusty roadside, but the last shot shows the fleshy hairs that distinguish it from other genera. I took a bunch of shots, but few ended up being in focus, including those where I held their faces up to the light. Oh, well.
Edit: Just figured it out, thanks to the internet: Calochortus amabilis "Fairy Lantern".
