Nasturtium

An extreme closeup of the frilly edges at the center of a nasturtium:

Most years I grow nasturtium in my vegetable garden. A few of the flowers make it in to salads, but I don’t think I’ve used one in a photograph before. There’s lot to see in the flower center of a nasturtium, this is just one view of many. The yellow patches areΒ  anthers.

  1. What a beautiful image. I adore nasturtiums, but never really had looked beyond their colors and general shape to notice some of the other details. Looking at your photo, I’m reminded of flames; it’s an abstraction that draws me in as surely as a true fire would.
