Saltwort - Glaux Maritima

We were at Saligo on another glorious afternoon today. This Saltwort was growing quite profusely at the edge of the beach - at the transition between beach and machair, mostly in cracks in the rocks. The leaves are fleshy and a deep rich green, the flowers a delicate pinkish red.
Also called Sea milkwort
