Nasterium flowers

The only remaining plants still flowering in my garden is this Nasterium bush. There are a few roses as well but can see that the cold is getting to them.

I planted the Nasterium last year and it withered in winter. I thought they had died but they miraculously sprouted up again in summer this year.

The shiny streaks on the leaves in the picture are the slug trails.

This is my Green Thumb Sunday post for this week.

Well, better than me! I'm not much of a gardener. LOL

Slug slime? And I've been using the leaves in salads! Luckily we don't have slugs. If I saw such a sight, I don't think I'd ever use them again, even washed with Clorox!

I had no idea that Nasterium leaves were edible.
