Nose-Twisters

To the garden

Opal and Agathe went to the flower bed in the back garden…

Nasturtium

…to visit the Nasturtium plants!

Nose-Twister

Nasturtium literally means “nose-twister”- perhaps because they smell and taste spicy…

Tropaeolum majus

…the plants originally come from central and south America.

Spicy

…a spicy fog under the Nasturtium umbrellas!

climbing

We like how the plants climb around everywhere throughout the garden…

oh, orange

…to create a nose-twister paradise!

  1. Very interesting about the “nose twister” meaning…and “tongue twister” (per Katechiconi). Well, despite it being a jungle, it’s certainly a visual paradise of beautiful, bright colors during the heat of summer.

  2. I love nasturniums but had no idea that was the meaning behind their name. How cute! The twins look like blossoms among the plants.

    • The twins are as gleeful as ever, going in and out of the flower stems, clambering up the vines and poking their heads above the sea of flowers…every day the view of our garden is different and lovely!

  3. Dear Hitty Lady, I want to drop some of my thoughts in here, be sure this is not a compliment, this is the reality of your hand art work. You know me, I am interested in these kind of hand art works. I saw, found, watched many doll arts,… They are beautiful but in yours there is a very special difference, maybe I told this before, but I want to say again, the difference is, you bring together them, I mean real life and miniature world… And your photography is the top end for all these amazing story and work. Fascinated. I hope you make a big book all these stories. And they all should be in a museum too. Thank you so much, Blessing and Happiness, to you All, Love, nia
