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.

Hi Sue,
Keeping the weeds down is always a plus!
Zinnias are beautiful too and they are pollinator magnets!

Thank you, I'm glad you liked the article.
