What is this plant?

Hi I allowed these seedlings to grow in my summer planter to see how they would turn out but I have no idea what they are! I dont even recognise them as a weed.  You will see there is some sort of flower buds in the joints.

    The yellow flower is a Mesembryanthemum.
    cant see the purple one, and no idea what the one with the buds up the stem is.

    Thanks! It’s the one to the right of the pot In the photo. The others are the ones I’ve planted

    Some kind of mustard/rapeseed probably - the one on the right. Possibly from bird seed. 
    Need better photos of the purple one. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    I only needed to know the one on the right. The rest of the plants I put in -the purple one is Calibrachoa - million bells. The bird seed one makes sense! Thanks

    There’s a nasturtium in there as well 😊
