Does anyone know what this plant is? it has appeared under my bird feeder. It is about a foot tall, very slim leaves about an inch long. Produces white flowers sometimes. Its very pretty but I am having problems identifying it.

That's flax, (linseed).

Indeed it is, flax is very pretty in this blue shade, there is also a red one - sown in a patch in a border they make a lovely addition to an annual bed.
