Nasturtiums are going a bit wild, which is just fine with me. They are pretty to look at, good to eat, can take on weeds, and are not hard to remove if they get out of control.
I think the original nasturtium seeds were a subtle mahogany colour, but lately more have popped up which are distinctly fluorescent orange, road cone colour.
I’ve carried these home in two milk bottles, and they look so lovely I have left them in the bottles. There is something about more than one similar small vases. You will have to take my word for it since the light is too low to do them justice in a photograph.
Although these are Spring flowers, the colours are a little like Autumn – over at Rambling in the Garden Autumn flowers are glowing too.

Everyone has chosen this colour scheme this week. There’s no criticism in that. When I put my flowers into their vase they’ll be just white!
You are right, there are all sorts of lovely orange mixes this week. It seems more appropriate to Autumn than Spring to me.
Road cone colour – love it! And strangely nasturtiums are summer to autumn flowering plants in the UK – mine are still going strong, but not as bright as yours! I have seen some pink ones in a seed catalogue which I shall try next year – I fancy them weaving through the borders. Thanks for sharing
Pink sounds interesting, I can’t imagine it. Mine only die down after a hard frost, or if it gets really dry.
Gorgeous sunny colours. Just what we need now it’s turned misty and dull here. Thanks for sharing
Thanks, it is raining tonight, but I’m hopeful for some gardening weather tomorrow.
Liking the road cone colours, perfect for Autumn tones
You could warm a room wioth those fiery colors!
Thanks 🙂 they were very cheering.
My nasturtiums have reverted as well. I was thinking that next spring I might start anew with fresh cultivars.
Your land is so lush and green – what a gorgeous view!
Thanks Eliza, it is very green at the moment – all that rain. It is a peaceful retreat here. It might be enough to introduce some new seeds to bring the variation back. Or to ruthlessly weed out the throwbacks. I’m not so good at the ruthless bit, it’s a very laissez faire system here.
Sounds like my garden style. I call it Darwinian – survival of the fittest! 😉
