Flowers for Friday: Nasturtiums in the morning sunlight




We've been having a quiet week here. Nasturtiums (with a touch of geranium and bromeliad) are gracing our kitchen windowsill right now.

ps Both the Samantha Robinson fish vessel and the beautiful japanese Kokeshi doll (who I've named Akiko) were gifts from my sister Amy.

  1. I have my whole kitchen windowsill covered with vases full of flowers at the moment....more so to block out my neighbours....but they do look pretty.
    I love Nasturtiums....such a cheeky little flower! Have you ever used them in cooking? I would love to, all the best cooks do, so they must be yum!! Have a lovely weekend x

    1. I've used the leaves (they're very peppery) but never the flowers. I should. We certainly have plenty here!

      Clever using vases of flowers to block out the neighbours. (:

  3. You always seem to feature the flowers of my childhood in your little space here Imogen, because nasturtiums always grew wild in my parents garden... and still do. Beautiful photos xo

    1. Nasturtiums are one of those easy cheerful plants that seem to pop up everywhere. They are completely unruly in our new backyard.

      Your parents must have a beautiful garden. I'm slowly piecing it together, May Bush, Nasturtium. I wonder if I'll feature another flower they have? We shall see. Im x.

  4. I love the morning light shining through your windows. Nasturtiums I remember picking these often as a child as they grew wild in the backyard:)
