red sand-spurrey, Spergularia rubra

Red sand-spurrey is one more little pink blossom you might find in your lawn, or along a road. For some random reason, I've most often seen it at freeway rest areas. We should probably stop meeting like that. This Old World flower can now be seen in open, often slightly damp areas in AK, AL, CA, CO, CT, DE, ID, IL, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MT, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, UT, VA, VT, WA, WI, WY, BC, NB, NF, NS, ON, PE, QC, YT, and on SPM.
