FOTD: Nov. 8, ’21. Nasturtium

The lily-pad shape of this plant is its charm and its veins give it a cool textured look. On our nature walks these plants look like happy smiles saying “hello.” I just learned that their leaves and flowers are edible with a peppery taste.

The more I learn about plants and flowers, it makes me realize how common plants we overlook have their own special qualities and characteristics.

β€œIn every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.”

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Glad you like the picture and quote combination. I hope you do use the quote in your posts. John Muir’s quotes crop up when you search nature quotes. On Wikipedia, he’s known as the person who pushed to make Yosemite a national park and advocated for wilderness preservation in North America.

      1. That’s right – I forgot that fact and didn’t associate it with him. I think it would be wonderful to visit some of the national parks. When I was on the lighthouse tour, people had a passport and each lighthouse stamped their passport with a stamp of that lighthouse. So I wrote a post about the lighthouse tour and the passport of stamps and another blogger said they do that for the national parks with the passport/stamps. I thought that was very interesting.

      2. Visiting some of the national parks would be an awesome experience. It takes dedication and time. One of our neighbors does this with their 2 kids and they have a badge thing to record their visits. Now I see the association of getting passports stamped. Big lighthouse fan here and would really enjoy a tour like that.
        So much beauty and history at these places.
