When I was a kid, I used to plant flowers on the first day of school vacation. It was just a habit I got into and I enjoyed seeing them burst into bloom during the summer. One of my favorites was nasturtiums.
Then we moved here and I tried them, but it's just too hot here for nasturtiums. I tried a couple times, then gave up.
This year I was determined to try again. I planted them in two pots on the deck.
