Is any purslane edible?

I have a wild purslane growing in my yard. It has tiny pink flowers. Would that be an edible one?

The common purslane that is generally regarded as edible (Portulaca oleracea) has small yellow flowers.

If you could post a photo it might be possible to identify what you have growing.
