Hutchinsia flowering at Oxwich

The diminutive Hutchinsia (Hornungia petraea) was just coming into flower at Oxwich today. This scarce winter annual can be found with patience on several of South Wales' dune systems. It's best to look for the rosette of purple leaves rather than the tiny white flowers!
My car key shows how tiny these plants are!
