Great photo! These grow wild in the parks here in the middle of winter.

Thank you Delonix1!!
So, these won't die out in winter there in CA? That's really surprising.

No it doesn't die...and it grows much larger here. It starts blooming around Christmas time here.

Fantabulous!!!!!! Do they flower twice a year then?

I think they only flower during winter...that's the only time I've noticed them flowering, anyway.

Oh I see. It's funny the same plant flowers in the different season in the different part of the world!

That's not too unusual. I see many photos of Nasturtiums growing and blooming in the UK in summer. They grow wild and bloom everywhere here in winter.
