Saturday PhotoHunt - Wrinkled.


The Saturday PhotoHunt is hosted by TNChick.
Visit her for a load of great photos.

This week's theme is wrinkled.

I thought of a self-portrait.
Then I thought of a photo of my long-suffering husband.
Neither seemed right.

Then Youngest Son did some weeding, and ended up with a load of these.

Fresh Nasturtium seeds.

They look fairly wrinkled.

They'll look even more wrinkled after they dry out - but that's the case with all of us!

One day I must try pickling these. Capers (pickled nasturtium seeds) are used in such things as Tartare Sauce.

Happy Hunting everyone.

That's a great idea for the wrinkled theme. Hope you have a great weekend.

You can pickle them just like capers too!

Interesting. I must check out what "nasturtium" means from the dictionary. Don't think I have ever seen them before in this part of the world.

Randi said...

Nice catch for the wrinkled theme.

It was not that long ago that I discovered capers came from nasturtiums. Happy weekend Dragonstar.

Wow, we learned something new today :)

Larry said...

isn't that the truth that the wrinkles just seem to happen the older one gets -- I'm glad I have PhotoShop that's for sure.

CherryPie said...

Nice one! What a great picture for the theme this week!

Denise said...

I'll be harvesting mine shortly ready for next year!

Brine Queen said...

Cool photo! Some seeds and fruits are so very wrinkly, and I only thought of that after I saw your post! Great idea.

dawn said...

I have not heard of capers but they sure fit the theme for this week! Have a great weekend.

Leslie said...

Have a good weekend - and i have never seen nasturtium seeds before. Nasturtiums were quite common here when I was a child, but they don't seem to be around much anymore, which is sad.

starnitesky said...

Learnt something new today, I didn't know capers were nasturtium seeds. Mine didn't grow very well this year, maybe not enough sunshine.

Sammawow said...

Wonderful take on the wrinkled theme! I love capers but didn't know that they were nasturtium seeds. I hope that you have a great weekend!

Carin said...

The capers I used to pick in Gozo were much smaller and greener. Anyway yours do look very wrinkled. Nice picture.

mistyeiz said...

oooo u make ur own?? cool!!! nice shot. :)

Colin Campbell said...

I love nasturtiums. They are so robust and beautiful. Low maintenance and good value. Tasty in salads.

babooshka said...

I would not have known what those were at all. They look like radioactive walnuts.

Liz said...

I didn't know that! I learn so much from you!

Very wrinkled seeds. I do know that if left to themselves nasturtiums will spread everywhere!

Nydia said...

They look so much with a fruit we have here, called Pitanga, only they're red, these would be them before ripping.

Kisses!
