N is for Nasturtiums


Warm sunny colors
Sweetly beckon the hummingbirds
bees and butterflys

I always plant nasturiums not only because
they are so pretty, but they attract all sorts
of pollinators that we love to watch and enjoy
their busy-ness of life. Nothing better than
sitting in the sun enjoying life around you.
The flowers and leaves are also quite tasty
in a salad or used as a fancy garnish.

I had never heard of Nasturtiums prior to this post. They are quite beautiful.

Now that's a very lovely shot. I want to sit there drinking a nice cup of coffee and just relax.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Have a great day.

I know the names of very few flowers, but thanks to you I can now add one more to the few I know.
