That looks a bit like the miniature poppy i bought at Wisley recently.
If you get the time, have a look at my picture of it and why not google Papaver alboroseum and see if it looks and reads the same ?

I find they grow small if in a crevice or somewhere where there's next to no soil. Must be a random seed - maybe from a bird.
