Baskets of Nasturtiums

Oh, and Hey! Did you know you can make pickled nasturtium seeds? Yep. They're like capers, apparently:

I love nasturtiums. Glad they are blooming for you. I noticed one growing by my compost pile yesterday. I have some in pots but no blooms yet.

Lovely! I started some seed for my MIL and FIL, and they've been slowly growing since January but no blooms yet. Yours look great!
