Mycala provided the perfect subject for today's illustrated journal from her herb garden - one of my favorite edible flowers - nasturtium, Tropaeolum majus They add a peppery flavor and color to salads, similar to watercress, though not from the same family.
It is interesting to note that the latin name for watercress is Nasturtium microphyllum. The word 'nasturtium' comes from the Latin 'nasus torts'.
I highly recommend both the garden nasturtium and watercress, and will happily risk a twisted nose.
Oh, and by the way - the nasturtium in one of the Leo Zodiac herbs! You'll find a few more Leo herbs in the gallery!
