does anyone know what this white wildflower is? Its stems are so thin it's been difficult to photograph because they kind of blend in with the other plants, but it's been producing more and more white blossoms. Would be nice to know what it is!

I'm wondering if it is baby's breath, Gypsophila elegans?

It is possible, the flower is wrong to see
Stellaria - It has soft, finely hairy leaves
Gypsophila - It has a smooth, tougher leaves, the stem and leaves are somewhat similar to Dianthus - joints are easy to break, the color of the leaves is a little gray

Maybe there are different kinds of Gypsophila? (2nd photo is from a google image search)

I had no idea there were so many varieties of it!
I'm pretty sure what I have is the G. elegans because it is listed in a packet of wildflower seed that I sowed. Whistling It didn't look like my mental image of what's 'baby breath' should look like, but now I realize there are so many different kinds, and I was thinking of the kind the florists use! *Blush*
