I thought the Nasturtiums were done for the year, but the past week of quite-warm Indian Summer has given me more blossoms. The backyard is graced with a bright orange variety, as the purple Tradescanthia is finishing up its annual cycle. The fallen leaves compliment the edible orange flower, right?
Meanwhile, on my front porch, this lighter yellow/orange Nasturtium bloomed today amid the Dusty Miller . There is something so appealing about a tender annual that refuses to give up until the very last second of the season. I suppose there is something to be said about its human caretaker that concentrates so much on the lifecycle of his flowers, too!
