Moonbean Yarrow .. this is my favourite of all yarrows! I bought a number of them on sale, the flowers were finished and the plants looked like they were done. I potted them up, gave them some EM and voila! Blooming away – so cheerful in the garden! One day I will plant them randomly and watch happily as they grow in abandonment (at our next place!)
Inspiration comes from watching the tenacious growth of beans … they seek structure in order to grow upwards. These are the Spanish Musica beans.
I’d missed these long S. Musicas as I’ve been trying to pick them when they are half this size! Still delicious though. Amazing beans. I’ll have lots for next years plants as the vines are growing way beyond my reach, even with a ladder. So the ones I can’t reach will be great for next year!
I love you two, little beans. Despite barriers in their path, they continued to grow around them. Another lesson of inspiration.
As always, blessed with sky art above us.
I had purchased a packet of these nasturtiums, only about 8 in the package. So I planted them hither and yon in the garden. This is the first flowering one .. I noticed this by chance yesterday and had to kneel on the ground to take this photo.
Oh joy .. my favourite bean is flowering .. soon the beans will be there!
Hmmm .. the little Chickadee seems to be noticing the low level of seeds in the feeder .. must add a bit more. I love how they announce their arrival with short little Chickadee chirps.
The pal of the Chickadee — the Nuthatch swiftly chooses a sunflower seed — then flies away to feast on a nearby tree.
Loving how the beans are growing up the gigantic bamboo stake! They find their way without my guidance (too high for me to reach, anyway!)
It was the texture and design of the back of this bush bean that caught my eye .. the symmetry and beauty of nature’s design.
Thanks to the birds .. they drop the occasional sunflower seed and I enjoy the beauty of the sunflowers. I thank them for their gardening skills!! 🙂
ha ha ha .. I had no idea that the beans would grow so much .. leaving me just enough space to walk through the mini-tunnels of live plants. Next time I will leave more space. Who knew those tiny seeds would be so lush?? Not me, that is for sure. They get lots of music and love (plus EM and llama manure) to grow their best.
One last photo. I tugged at the outreaching stem of this Scarlet Red Runner bean .. it was very strong .. not a delicate plant. Has to be strong to survive.
That was part of my garden day yesterday.
And then I went drumming … but that is another story.
🙂 On with this day.
