California Indian Pink (Silene californica)

Yay! I figured out what flower this is. It's California Indian Pink (Silene californica). Today, since the rain caused a traffic freak-out and the bridge was absolutely horrible, I decided to exit the madness and stroll around S.F.s REI (my only shopping addiction). To kill time, I spent an hour browsing their book section. At one point I decided to search the wildflower guides to see if I could find it. I found one that looked similar but didn't have the yellow stamins. After I got home, it was U.C. Berkeley's Calphotos to the rescue! I looked up "indian pink" and VIOLA!

I love
