Looks like Helichrysum arenarium to me. Do the buds open up more?

Looks like a pearly everlasting to me, Anaphalis margaritacea.  We had a patch of them in my coastal mountain home area of Oregon, about 80 miles south of Portland.

Here are more pics to look at and info:USDA Distribution of pearly everlasting

Some herbal/edibility info on it: Pearly Everlasting on EdibleWildFood.com

And some more pics, ID info, and medicinal uses:  Pearly Everlasting on Montana Plant Life

The flowers are very distinctly ball-shaped, with white bracts and then yellow furry parts inside, as such from Wikipedia:


See what you think,
Kim
