Nasturtiums From Light To Dark

 I never really noticed the colors of the nasturtium flowers in our front yard, well except to notice that they're not all orange the way they are in our back yard. So when I was photographing flowers last week to celebrate our clean air, blue skies, and sunshine, I photographed a nasturtium. It made me want to photograph the colors that we have here. So here they are from light to dark.







Taking a good look at the details of their beauty is a wonderful way to forget about the world for a while.

  2. I've found that the most reliable way to stir up a breeze is to attempt to take a picture of a flower.

    1. Patti-- Now I'm wondering if it has to do with sunlight. More in the front than in the back. Mmmm?

  5. Your photographs truly show the beauty of nasturtiums! My father grew nasturtiums for the 25 years he and my mother lived on the bluffs in Gualala, until my mother's sudden and unexpected death in 1994. Seeing your nasturtiums brings back good memories.

  8. I love this. I do like nasturtiums but I've only planted them once. I'll have to see if the feed store has seeds.

  9. Those are lovely and I like those delicate shaped leaves they have. I Googled to see if they are annuals and it says they are both annuals and perennials. I will have to plant some next spring. Beautiful colors from one plant or different plants?

    1. Ellen-- Nasturtiums seed like crazy, so it's likely that these are different plants all entwined out in our front yard.

  10. Excellent! I do love this "spectrum" of nasturtiums -- one of my favorite flowers. Ours tend to be the orange or darker variety.
