Green Day 6

Fiona at Raindrops and Daisies hosts Green Day. Just post a photo of something green and link back to her blog. Quick and easy . . . 
I love the marbling on this nasturtium leaf. It makes a very pretty foil for the yellow and orange flowers. All parts of the nasturtium are edible - the seeds can be pickled to make Poor Man's Capers. The only trouble is that you have to get to the plant before the black fly do . . .


  1. Gefällt mir sehr gut...

    Lieben Gruß und Carpe Diem

  2. that is really beautiful! so many shades on one gorgeous leaf. :)

  3. The markings on the leaves are so pretty.

  10. Beautiful picture you show.
    Thank you for visiting my blog.
    Wishing you a good weekend :)

  11. Beautiful! I'm fascinated by leaves.

  12. I've never seen a variegated nasturtium leaf. It is beautiful. The 'normal' one is taking over my vegetable garden as we speak, but I love the colourful flowers, so I'm far too relaxed about it and am not cutting it back hard enough ;-)

  13. Very nice photo! All shades of green!

  14. What a gorgeous leaf. You might not pay attention to the whole plant, but when you reflect on the beauty of that single leaf, you understand Mother Nature's gift.

  15. Today I decided to visit some other blogs then the one I usual read. I came over from Gattina.
    I like nasturtium very taste in a salad. I have to confess I didn't plant any this year and I don't have much in bloom now.
    Hope you get a chance to stop on over and the coffee is on.

  16. That is indeed a lovely leaf - and a good shot :)
    Many thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog - I really appreciate it.

  17. The mottling on this leaf is gorgeous! Have you ever had nasturtium jelly? You make a strong tea of the flowers, then make jelly as normal. Red with an orange tone to it, and tasty!
    The flowers and leaves can also be used in salads.
