Phacelia distans (common phacelia).  I can't quite rule out P. cicutaria var. hispida (caterpillar phacelia) but several things argue for the former: the sort-of purple spots -- the distinguishing feature for P. distans using the Jepson key if they were stronger -- the general "feel", and reports that P. distans is more common here.
