In the garden......again

Nasturtiums do not feature often at the top of the list when talking about annuals but they do have a loveliness all of their own.

They are supposed to be easy to grow, in fact, the worse you treat them the more they are supposed to reward you. Such has not been the case for us.

Nevertheless, we tried again and this summer we have had some measure of success.

I bought a couple of punnets of nasturtiums and planted them without separating them and within weeks we had a mass of nasturtiums showing off lovely yellow, orange and burnt red flowers.

To see the yellow ones pictured trailing over a retaining wall was truly delightful.

We hope that now we have managed to get them growing this summer that they will continue to self seed in coming years.

I have neglected the garden. Maybe this year I'll try these again. I am plagued with a trailing vinca! :)
