Artist's Description

Watercolour in Moleskine Folio 200gsm Nature Journal
As I work among my flowers, I find myself talking to them, reasoning and remonstrating with them, and adoring them as if they were human beings.  Much laughter I provoke among my friends by so doing, but that is of no consequence.  We are on such good terms, my flowers and I!*
Celia Thaxter,  1835-1894
Orange Nasturtiums from my garden last summer (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa) – I had to pull out just about the whole batch (but not before I’d collected a lot of the seeds!) as they got attacked by a white, sticky fungus.
Nasturtiums are a gardener’s dream. They are virtually carefree once established. Snails don’t seem to be interested in them. They will even self-seed and come back the next year in mild climates. I look forward to their return each year; it signals that summer is here at last.
Nasturtium is antimicrobial, so it is good to eat this herb for infections. It is useful for respiratory infections like bronchitis, flu and colds, and it is also helpful for reproductive infections.
