Forked Bluecurls

I first came upon Bluecurls, Trichostema dichotomum, last weekend. I was intrigued with the delicate structure of the dried flower sepals. How do these papery little treasures keep it all together throughout our winter?

I spent only a few minutes in A Guide to Wildflowers in Winter to complete my ID of this annual.

The bleached out appearance in these photos is quite accurate. The stark whiteness of this little one stood out clearly near the shoreline.
