Hi, i think it is a member of Capparidaceae family.
we have many Capparis spinosa here in Italy, growing in old stone walls of the ancient towns, in expositions to South and West, and the flower is really identical, as well as the flower buds.
best wishes,
Giovanni Signorini

Oi Giovanni, I think you're right. Now that you mention it, I remember a botanist identifying capparis in this same area at Bosque Santa Lucia. Some years ago and I'd forgotten about it. Many thanks.
