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 love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
