Wavy bitter-cress

In the sunshine today the first flower of the year opened on a very depauperate example of wavy bitter-cress, Cardamine flexuosa, growing in The Waste.

One might easily think the plant was hairy bitter-cress, but I know that the many examples now growing in M3 and The Waste are seedlings from the larger plant of flexuosa that flourished, and set much seed, last year.
