Almost missed them

So, so tiny!

Spreading stonecrop, Sedum divergens. The white flowers (in focus and not) are Shepherd's cress, Teesdalia nudicaulis.

I found these on the sandy dunes at Oyster Bay. A patch a foot across, no more, just at shoe height.

With my fingertip for size. That fingernail is 8 mm. long; I have tiny nails.

The plants will eventually sprout taller stems, up to 6 inches tall, with showy yellow flowers.

  1. We have a lovely section of stone crop on our cliff. I cascades down the granite slope like a living waterfall. I love the bright yellow flowers. - Margy

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
