N is for "Nasturtium"

 

Common Name: Nasturtium
Scientific Name: Tropaeolum

Nasturtium is one of my top favourite flowers. The delicate orange petals are enough to warm up my heart. Back home, it was usually  grown in winter-spring season and the bright flower would perfectly complement a sunny winter day.

After I moved to Delhi, I try to cultivate a bit of my maternal home and home State in our balcony. The above pictures are that effort. Aren’t they a joy for the eyes? You can read more of my balcony garden in my post Progress Plant IV: Spring In My Home.

I am taking part in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge [April 2016].

  1. What a lovely flower! I'd heard (probably read) the name nasturtium, but I had no idea it looked like this. How cool you've brought a bit of 'home' to your new home with them :)Thanks for the visit over at Life In Dogs! Glad you liked Carlito's story 🙂
