This flower has been coming up every summer for around three years ago I don't know whether it's a weed or something that I have planted, it doesn't seem to have much foliage. I think that it's probably a weed which I don't mind but if it's going to cause a problem by spreading and taking over I will pull it up. Thanks for any help you can give.

    Thanks very much @Asarum I must have planted it after all and will leave it to live and thrive.  :)

    I know it as Brodiaea laxa. I think it's probably an older name but there are suppliers still using it, so that might be what was on the packet when you planted them.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained

    I'm not really a flower child more of a vegetable head, I tend to get cheap packs of bulbs or plants on offer stick them in and forget about them so it could have come from anywhere.
