Day 21: It's Hairy

Happy May Day! Another feature from small world today. This lovely little flower is called marsh sand spurry (Spergularia marina). It's fairly common on the island, a low growing shrub that creates a low green carpet in some areas.  Its leaves and stem are covered in fine hairs that glow when backlit by setting sun.
