of the summer. In spring I planted dozens of nasturtium seeds, because I wanted to paint some nasturtiums. Unfortunately, I later realized that one of my seed packets was from last year, and I guess the seed does not keep well. I got a very low germination rate, despite pre-soaking. And so far this is the very first blossom (with no other buds visible either). I guess my soil has gotten too rich. Or maybe it just wasn't an ideal year for nasturtiums? Obviously not ideal for me at any rate!
