This photo of Asiatic dayflower was taken at the side of my house.  So
    far, I've only noticed it in two other places. One is on top of the stone wall,
    just up from the five-way intersection of Freedom, Northrop and Williams
    Streets and Jones Road. The other is beside Freedom Street near the
    railroad crossing. (Not the crossing where the road goes over to Bancroft
    Park, but the crossing near the Freedom Street entrance to the
    Parklands.)

      The half-inch flowers bloom for only a day, but more keep coming from
    June until October.  Massachusetts is as far north as they are found
    which is perhaps the reason they don't seem to be too common around
    here
