i'm snap happy..

now that i have my advanced diploma in sending photos from phone to computer so i just couldn't resist photographing these nasturtiums because they offer some cheer on this cold and about to rain sunday..

even nasturtiums like a cup of tea!

they were part of a rescue mission i carried out vegetable garden is suffering from abuse by neglect as a result of a recent trip away and a cold..a few things have got out of control..namely flanders poppies, stinging nettles and i want them all in my garden but not at the expense of everything else so i did a serious bit of thinning..but before i relegated the nasturtium tentacles to the compost heap i rescued the flowers..if the weather holds out a bit longer i want to get at the nettles and make some 'zeb bakes' gnocchi..will let you know how it goes weather and gnocchi wise..jane


  1. I was intrigued by the nettles when zeb bakes made them and even more so if you make them too. I have seen them for sale once too...
    Nasturtiums look perfect in the teapot.

  2. Nettle gnocchi sounds very interesting indeed! :D
