Thank you to the both of you.

Thank you for the information on the flower. I did a little research and found it all interesting. I learned that this plant has some antibacterial qualities, it is used for a variety of ailments especially in China. Japan uses it to make a dye, I need to do more research on the dye making.

I have liked this little plant since the first time that I saw it years ago.

This is Asiatic dayflower, Commelina communis. Like morning glories, the flowers open in the morning and wither in the heat of afternoon, but more new ones open every day. It seeds around but I have never known it to be a nuisance. This shade-loving annual wildflower is not native to the US, but is found or can be grown just about anywhere. I have a strain that originated in Minnesota that I have carried with me and planted every place I've lived in the last 50 years. They make great potted plants for a sunny windowsill in winter, too, if the seeds are planted in fall.
