Nasturtiums from Sarah's garden

We had friends for dinner this weekend and after a 4 mile chilly walk along the bay we settled in for a delicious meal and lively conversation. Sarah brought some of the last of the tomatoes, green beans and herbs from their garden along with this sweet nasturtium bouquet. I had to work fast because when I finally got around to getting out the paints, the petals were starting to wilt. Thanks Sarah.

Wonderful treatment - the splashy, clear colors. You also reminded me how easily "moments" are made the into "Moments" ... by the simple act of honoring them. :)

Oh lucky Sarah! My nasturtiums made a very poor showing. Too much rain? Your watercolor sketch is captivating! You are an inspiration.

Lovely wet colorful nasturtiums. I love the blue vase, too. Did you eat some of the flowers? They are tasty!

Do you see the floral-plumed
bird standing in the
vase, its little
blue head (right)and that
sliver of orange beak?
