Can you ID this plant?

I was in far Northern CA. This small what looks like a wild flower was growing on the bank next to a road, carpeting the area with a blanket of blooms. The


about 10 feet high and 30 feet wide. This area was once way more populated because of the Gold Rush, and there are many naturalized plants here left over from domestic plantings, which this may be, I don't know. Can anyone tell me what this is?

Jacqueline, the photo was too blurry to get a close look at the leaves and flowers. If you can get a better close up, that would be great. If you post this question on the Name That Plant Forum, you should get a quick answer providing you submit a better close up. :)
