That is what I was thinking after I'd posted it  :booklook:
Will wait to see if anyone else has any ideas.

I agree. Linum suffruticosum. White flax. Very common.

I love it. Creamy buds and pure white flowers. It's very common in our area anyway.

Yeah it's very pretty, I love it and probably common around here to but I just haven't noticed it before.

According to Flora Iberica, Linum suffruticosum is not in "Las Alpujarras" (Granada or Almería). It will probably be L. jimenezii.
