big blue flowers

In my unending exploits to have a wonderful balcony garden, the wildflower mix came up trump this week with a really nice surprize. These flowers are MASSIVE! they are almost as big as some of my sunflower flowers.

but....does anyone know what they are?

I also have a mystery plant growing in with my parsley. At first I thought they were cherry tomato plants, but the fruit on the plant is turning sort of a deep purple...not a red like one would expect with cherry tomatoes....and they are about the size of a pea if extracted from a pod.

any thoughts?

The big blue flowers look like morning glory vines to me. Beautiful color and they seem to be glowing in the picture.

Yes, they look like morning glory flowers - they don't grow so big here, and are regarded as a weed; because we don't have cold winters they don't stop growing. Don't know about the purple 'thing' though!
