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.

Nasturtiums! I love them! They're cheerful looking and taste delicious in my salad.
Me too! But I have never eaten them.
We used to have them in our garden before we moved house 20 years ago. I'd forgotten how beautiful they were.
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 🙂
They're gorgeous and I believe edible.
