Description

for context, see daily account #15. i know that this particular alyssum was planted, but i documented it because i have seen alyssum growing wild near sidewalks and even on sandier substrates near beaches and in other parts of the city. i know because i always pick some to smell it- it has a beautifully sweet fragrance, and i see it most often in white, purple, or some combination of the two. i learned that it is native to the mediterranean region, but has been naturalized everywhere else.
