Solanum nigrum aka European Black Nightshade
Probably this is one of the ‘’weeds’’ that I love to see on my backyard! I love its flowers, and Also its berries! It is not sooo common on my backyard if you want the truth! I’ve just found this one, this year! My backyard isn’t exactly a nice place to weeds, my grandma takes good care of them! Lol ! Anyways, This plant is toxic , but it is NOOOOT sooo poisonous! Can you believe I google it some information about it, and in India it is used in the culinary?

Anyways, the berries are more toxic when green, than when they are purple! Once purple, they are even eaten by the birds what helps their life circle!
At first I confused these plants with potato plants, because their flowers are very similar but the truth is that this one has smaller flowers and the potato plant has it bigger!
