New to me. I wasn’t able to get very close it put me in mind of a thistle, or something else in the sunflower family? Maybe?

It was growing low to the ground in a very scrubby roadside here in Southern California. The taller thin green plants/leaves are Russian thistle (tumbleweed) and horseweed growing through and around it; it’s only the branches with the same jelly looking bits as the flowers that are from the same plant.

I’m from So. Cal near Newport Beach and have never seen anything like that plant.
Looks like something from Willy Wonka’s factory

And Kronksmom has the golden ticket

The other day we were with some friends and I said that I will probably die by trying to touch an animal that doesn't want to be touched. And my husband said, that's not true. You'll probably die by putting something in your mouth that you shouldn't. That hit me really hard, because he's 100% correct, but I never even considered that possibility.
