This trailing plant is very common. It grows in neglected walls. The leaves are about a centimetre across - the flowers about the same. There are very few months in the year when it is not in flower.
What is it? (It's embarrassing that I don't know!)
I've said the habitat is gardens and parks - but it isn't really. It's more in walls along the sides of roads, often in tatty places.
