I am a British born, living in Canada. Moved from the countryside in June 2014 to an "Active Adult Community" which is a whole new way of life.
My blog is about all aspects of my daily life.
It looks like some sort of nightshade. I'm no expert but I know there are various kinds. If it is you need to check whether it's poisonous. Some of them despite being pretty are deadly!
This is belladonna, or deadly nightshade. It has a colorful history - farmers hate it because it's poisonous to their livestock; and at one time ladies used to use the tincture in their eyes to dilate their pupils as a beauty aid, and is still used today for stomach ailments I think. Pretty!
Hi Gill,We have the same flower but white....and it's potato....hehehehehPerhaps theses gives bluepotatos

Definitely pretty regardless of its history. It looks so innocent . . .
It's beautiful Gill, and I see it has been identified as Belladonana or nightshade. Lovely photos, thanks for sharing them.
So so pretty ..wildflowers are certainly surprising beauties are they!
It grows all over around here. I do love the flower color.This is the 4th Canadian blog I have been to today. God bless our great neighbors to the north.

Deadly nightshade. Pull it out. The entire plant is toxic. Two berries can kill a child.
Deadly, but very nice.Have a nice week, Gill!
