Talking About Nasturtiums

By wildflowers
April 12, 2010

I have a personal fondness for this old-fashioned flower. Its delicate fragrance takes me back to when I was a young girl spending many hours in the garden. The taste of the sweet nectar from the spur of the nasturtium, the skipper butterflies fluttering around, and the ladybugs . . . I'm transported back in time.

Great artical Christine! I put some nasturtium flowers on a salad last summer we took to a bbq and it was a hit! I enjoyed the nectar in the spur too!

Thank you steve. I appreciate your compliment.

I bet your salad looked and tasted great with the nasturtium flowers sitting brightly on top. Although the flowers appear so delicate like tissue, they are actually quite durable and make a terrific long lasting garnish.
