alpine pennycress, Noccaea fendleri

This to me was an unremarkable little white flower in the mustard family, and of all the families, it's mustards I least appreciate. So it's been one I thought unlikely to appear here. Then the random number process picked it, and here it is. No longer unfairly treated. And after all, I did notice it. And get down among the rocks to find an image. And figure out if I could, with the plant half in the shade of one of those rocks. Now we have an unremarkable image of an ordinary plant, being talked about years later. Sometimes when it's talked about, it gets to be wild candytuft. It grows in AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, TX, UT, WA, and WY. Summit Co CO, 6/17/13.
