I just wanted to share some pretty pictures of nasturtiums today. They are my sister's favorite flower. Aren't they lovely?
I do not know where I got these first three pictures. If you recognize them as being yours- please let me know, so that I can give credit where credit is due.
My sister collects nasturtiums. Like nasturtium EVERYTHING - I'm not kidding. Her house is FILLED ( nearly to the brim) with TONS of beautiful things - mostly vintage, but not limited to that. And she collects many other types of things, as well. One of these days, if I can ever talk them into it (or help them, or both), I want my sisters to post on this blog, too. They could show you pictures of their collections and creations, as well. When I started my blog, I called it Gold Country Girls because I had hoped they might participate some day. We'll see.
Here, you can see some of the flowers on a pretty vintage bowl (with somebody's tomatoes). I can't WAIT for summer tomatoes!
These next two pictures are ones that I took in Fort Bragg, California. These flowers are prolific there - they love the sea air, the moisture.
Their round leaves can get big enough to be used as a plate! And the flowers are edible. Pretty, huh?
