Monday blooms electric

My very last Nasturtium blossom for this season is queen-for-the-day**--Today's Flowers that is. All of the rest that came out of one seed pack were the usual bright orange except for this beauty. Since these colorful fall mascots once were a flower on a vine or stem, it seemed only fair to include them too.
**see an old clip of Queen for the Day for any of us who might remember. . . here

and then visit Today's Flowers a virtual flower shop meme, the brainchild of Luiz Santilli, Jr. and his crew. . .a nice way to start the week.

Lovely Nasturtiums and a great photo of the gourds.
Watched the video too but have never seen that before.

for the last nasturtium it sure is lovely, not all scraggly. You have captured a lovely portrait of it.

pretty nasturtium flower! You may already know that you can eat them--slightly spicy--a nice addition to salads.
great Fall gourd photo, too!

I like your Nasturtium photo. I love this flower very much; it reminds me of my childhood. Your second photo is also beautiful; great fall decoration!
