Green Thumb Sunday


Nasturtiums, grown from seed, next to the huge, old, lilac bush. The cats were very fond of laying under the lilac bush, on top of the nasturtiums. You can tell they’ve had a few other visitors munching on them, as well. If you look closely, you can see the leaves of the Provincial Flower of Alberta (NOT), the dandelion!

GTS is hosted by As The Garden Grows. The following can be found in more detail at her site.

How do you participate?

Post a picture each Sunday of a flower or plant from your garden, an indoor plant, a nature scene, a landscape, wildlife that frequents your yard, your garden, etc.

The photos do not have to be recent. They could be of your parents or grandparents gardens, gardens of the past, photos of gardens or plants you’ve seen while on vacations. Just stick with the theme.

This is to be fun. It’s for gardeners, gardener wanna-be’s, house-plant enthusiasts, and nature lovers. When you’ve made your posts, please visit other and leave comments on their sites.

  1. I love Nasturiums. I always think of them as moon flowers, only because their leaves are shaped like full moons!

  2. This year I didn’t plant Nasturtiums, and I miss them already. Happy GTS,

  3. I alway get a chuckle thinking of an edible flower named Nasturtium. Lima Beans or Zucchini IMO should be called Nasturtiums.

  4. Beautiful lighting on those Nasturtiums! I love cutting the leaves into my salads – spices it up a bit.

    At my blog this morning you asked if the Billbergia nutans could grow as a houseplant. I Googled “Billbergia houseplant” and got some promising results. Looks like a worthwhile hunt. Hope it works for you.


  5. It will be a while before we see nasturiums here, got my seed packets though.
    As to the bug box, its just a bird box without the front and hollow stems put inside it. It provides habitiat for solitary bees, ladybirds and lacewings.

    Cheers Mark

  6. Beautiful coloring on these 🙂

    Happy GTS!

  7. Oh, I always wanted to grow Nasturtiums but never have yet. Maybe this year I can remember to buy seed and actually plant them too.
