Does anyone know what these creeping little white clustered flowers are? I've searched and searched for info but I can't find anything! They have one stem and then just kind of creep across the dirt as they grow. The flowers are very tiny. Any help would be appreciated!

Gypsophila elegans, Annual Baby's Breath. If you get a nice, heavy planting of them, they make a lovely edging to flowerbeds.

Now that I take another look at the picture, I think you are right...it is Sweet Alyssum. [perplexed]

if its the one I think, they smell a lot like honey. during the warmer times of year, they smell really strong too. and so cute when they fill out.
