Common garden weeds

I took these pictures this summer and I was suppose to retake them to try to get the flowers in really good focus, but I forgot to do so. All of these flowers are smaller than a dime. I've seen them growing in my area since I was a kid and since I started gardening I'm curious what they could be.


  1. The first and third are in the genus Solanum - the potato family. The third flower is Commelina sp., a dayflower, but I'm not sure of the species, sorry.
    Nice photos.

    Thanks for the info and the compliment Darren.

    What happened to your blog I went to look but it seems to be gone.

    I love your collection. I have found when mine flower, the flowering rosette dies. It is kind of bittersweet.
    The second photo is Aquilegia.
