Artist's Description

If anyone has ever planted climbing Nasturtiums, then you feel my pain. The flowers are very nice and bloom for long periods… but the leaves! The leaves can get as large as any monstrous lily pad… and often completely obscure every bloom on the vine due to their size and number. They take over whatever space they inhabit and become, well… a nuisance.

After a couple of months of letting them pretty much do as they please, I lost my patience with the lot of them and ripped them all out… throwing the remains under the pine tree in my front yard. Weeks later… I discovered that they had somehow latched on under there. This is one of several blooms that is surviving on minimal light, (all filtered at best)… happily grinning at me from under the pine tree branches each time I walk past. I have to admit I was rather impressed with their tenacity, as I squatted on the lawn to get this shot of the sturdy little bugger.
