"I looked out of my window just now and saw cousin Jimmy's Nasturtium bed--
Nasturtiums, who coloured you, you wonderful, glowing things? You must have been fashioned out of summer sunsets." -Excerpt from Emily Climbs by L. M. MongomeryThere meaning is: Patriotism
Of all the flowers...Is it possible to choose a favorite? No. No, indeed. But I might say that Nasturtiums should be at lease in the first ten pages of every ones favorites. For they are beautiful. and edible. and useful.
I am told that if you plant these flowers in with your Kale, (or anything else that can get infested with aphids.) the aphids will eat the Nasturtiums and leave the greens alone. This is Sad for Nasturtiums, Happy for your Garden.

♥ Stuffed Nasturtium Blooms sound delicious. Appetizers are Happiness.
♥ Nasturtium Lemon Butter...Wouldn't this be good with scones? Sort of a twist on Lemon Curd.
