Twister with Nasturtiums

Nasturtium Tropaeolum Majus Alaska

Stratoz and our photographer friend Paul Grecian have a tradition of going to Longwood Gardens during Spring Break.  I appreciate that Stratoz is always on the lookout for orange.  These fine variegated Nasturtiums have a sunny yellow orange with darker red orange gathering in the creases.  I looked up the etymology of Nasturtium and it’s not a quite as sunny: “nose twister,” for its pungent smell.
