A nasturtium shows off with virtually no frost damage. Living at the base of the waterfall of the large pond, it may benefit from the higher humidity.

But there’s a better picture here. Squint at the small white blossoms of the alyssum at left. Then take in the larger white rock above the nasturtium, wearing the spiky leaves of the ginger plant draped above it like a bad toupee. I see the alyssum a group of tiny single-celled organisms, gathered before a benevolently smiling full-grown blob. The blob is wearing the orange nasturtium like a bowtie.

Then again, perhaps I should post in the morning, with a cup of coffee beside me, rather than in the evening with a glass of wine.

Wine is always good for the vision.
