Shooting Stars

Or that's what I've always called these wildflowers, which grow as weeds in my garden. They seem to be some species of Solanum, that is, nightshade, maybe Solanum dulcamara, which goes by a wide variety of names that include bittersweet, bittersweet nightshade, blue bindweed, Amara Dulcis, poisonberry, trailing bittersweet, and trailing nightshade. The fruit is a little poisonous.
