Siberian Candyflower, a shade-loving wildflower.

Mary Sue Ittner photographed the charming Siberian Candyflower, Claytonia sibirica. It's a member of the Purslane Family.

Candyflower grows in moist, shaded areas. The petals have been described as pink candy striped.

Thanks to Mary Sue for allowing me to share her photo with you here.

While a fog bank lurks over the Pacific Ocean, we are having a breezy, sunny day. The coast is full with visitors, including many abalone divers who were excited to dive for red treasure, especially with the morning's minus tides.
