I love Nasturtiums. Love the colours, love the foliage, love how easy they are to grow, love their taste on salads or just as a snack while toodling around the garden. I think I planted too many this year (if that’s possible), too closely together. But all these blooms make them an easy choice for today’s vase.
Three vases. I purchased these bud vases 25 years ago at a splendid little garden shop in Toronto, long closed, called Cruickshank’s. It was my go-to place for specialty bulbs, garden items, vines and Agapanthus. A big box Canadian book store chain decided to purchase the shop and then, for some reason, closed it.
Anyway, here are my Nasturtiums, picked early yesterday morning, still damp from the overnight rain. These will rest on the windowsill above the kitchen sink – ready to add to this week’s meals.
Many thanks to Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for hosting this meme and giving us an opportunity to share vases of flowers from around the world. Visit her to discover what she and others found to place In A Vase On Monday.
