Earlier in the year, I bought bikes for my daughter and I. Since then, they have lived in our sitting room due to lack of space outside. That is not the long term intention, however.
This is the outdoor space I am planning for them:
This space had largely been divested of the nasturtium plants that had self-seeded here before the photo. I’ve got a bit more work to do before the flagstones can go down but I got somewhat sidetracked by other household matters today.
One of these was removing the leaves and flowers from the nasturtiums I had taken up.
On my phone, searches generally do not throw up particularly authoritative sites, but from what I can glean, nasturtium are good for coughs and colds, no doubt at least in part because of their high Vitamin C content. On the other hand, according to WebMD there are some contra-indications.
Mm. I don’t have any kidney problems and I’m not pregnant (not sure if this was really on the list!), and I’m not going to use it on my skin, so a salad for tea will be fine. I’m sure.
In any case, as always, I am so pleased to have a garden offering which came to me as a gift of nature.
