A Flower Explosion

Sunshine has returned (for the most part), Spring is really here, and everything looks fresh and perky and colorful. Enjoy it, because the dusty dog days of summer are lurking around the corner.


  1. Very nice. I especially like that melon-colored Nasturtium. What variety is it? So far I have had good luck with Nasturtiums so they are quickly becoming a favorite!

  2. Hi Christine,

    It's getting harder for me to keep track of my nasturtiums since they've started re-seeding... but... in the past I've purchased most of my nasturtiums from Annie's Annuals ('Strawberries & Cream') and Select Seeds ('Vesuvias' and 'Whirlibird Cherry Rose')

    Both 'Strawberries & Cream' and 'Vesuvias' are nice peachy/melony nasturtiums. If I had to choose between the two, I'd probably go with 'Strawberries & Cream'.

  3. Nice! Today I have placed some Nasturtiums in my hanging baskets!


  4. Angela,

    Love the spring flowers. Several of my plants are coming into bloom now also - mostly cacti.

    Found myself here while searching for other blogs about cacti and succulents - which incidentally, are all I've been able to grow, along with just a few other plants that thrive on neglect.

    I see you have a collection but you haven't said much about them. Would love to know more.
