From wildflowers to wild quilts

These bright and beautiful nasturtiums are growing wild in my garden and are the perfect match for my latest quilt top which has been described by Mandy (daughter #2) as "a bit wild".

I suspect that when she said it was a bit wild, she was politely saying "Mum, it's a bit OTT".

The more I look at it, the more I agree with her but I also see clouds, sky and a riotous profusion of flowers growing randomly in the garden, so it will be called "wild garden".

Wild in a good way! That is so gorgeous. Makes me want to stop yanking out the nasturtiums that creep under out fence! Hey, and a big thanks the note of congratulations you left on my blog.
And another thing, bonus points for "munificent" a couple of posts back - very impressive :)
