    We have something in common on this GTS. I also blogged about Nasturtium. Lovely photo.

    Aiyana, thanks — I’ll come check out what you posted, as well!

    Very pretty color combination. The lighting was just right too. My post today is all about light and there’s some basil in it too.

    I love this picture! The sun makes the colors so vivid. Beautiful!

    Nice photo.
    I like the color and the way the sunlight hits the leaves.

    Heather, thanks for the comment — the light was a total accident, but I loved how it looked!

    Jean, thanks so much!

    Chigiy, it was a gorgeous day when I took that shot.

    This is a pretty flower. I would like more orange flowers in my garden.

    Emma, thank you and thanks for visiting!

    Sara, the orange nasturtium has been the most active lately, but I have a couple of other colored ones, as well. I think I planted a mix of colors — left it up to chance!

    I just read Aiyana’s post about Nasturiums … or nose twists. This is a pretty colour bloom.

    Very Interesting and wonderful shot! I like Nasturtiums never grew them though.

    Kate, thanks — I like that one. And yes, isn’t Aiyana’s post interesting?

    Curtis, thanks so much. They’re pretty easy to grow (especially if I can grow them!).

    Ack! I can’t believe your basil is still looking so good! Mine went to seed weeks ago :-( Beautiful shot, nevertheless!

    Nikkipolani, so far so good with the basil, although I’m sure it’s not loving the chilly nights we’ve been having… Thanks for the comment!

    wonderful pic. I love nasturtiums, will have to grow some next year

    Joyce, I’ll definitely grow them again, I think. They’re really pretty.
