|Deep Orange Arctosis|
There is a lovely small bunch of orange Arctosis,
|Apricot/pink ball of flowers on a zonal pelargonium|
another orangey/reddish beautiful Pelargonium,
and always my favourite rose, this beautiful Mary Rose with its lovely soft dusty pink flowers.
This is my favourite Nasturtium flower from childhood. I loved it when these flowers grew up a trellis in our garden in the spring in my Mum's garden.
Last year, all my Nasturtium flowers were a deep orange, almost a red. There were only 6 yellow blooms. This year they have surprised me and nearly all the flowers are yellow with only a few orange. I even saw a few apricot flowers as well.
When the flowers changed colours from year to year, my Mum used to always say 'It must be the bees'. End of story. I do like this rich golden yellow flower.
Nasturtiums seemed to be a favourite flower to adorn vintage seed packets too so they have been popular for a long time. Do you grow nasturtiums too?
