A California plant in bloom during spring

I was taking a walk in the park one spring day, when I noticed how beautifully the light was hitting this particular plant. At first glance, it did not look like anything special - just a green shrub with tiny flowers blooming out. But once I got closer, I could see that the flowers were magnificent in their detail and patterns.
