when you found it there it is dolomite, not limestone!

maybe a sandwort?


Haven't found a species with leaves like that, though...

Re: maybe a sandwort?

It looks like it, but I can't find one with those clustered flowers.

Re: maybe a sandwort?

The sandwort around here is A. Groenlandica, and usually has around four flowers per stem.

When they grow densely you have to look closely to count the stems: dense mat; but sometimes you find a lone stem:
early buds

PS "so alone, in the stone": rhyme, meter, scansion!

Re: maybe a sandwort?

I have attached your picture

to the Unidentified flora and fauna album. Hopefully you will get help there.
