The Bean House Grows and Grows

An idea,inspiration from friends ( am I too forward to call you a friend Sharon, hope not x )

Less than a month ago, still new, still patchy but with so much promise.
And now, a garden delight, a mix of Sunflowers, growing tall, nearly touching the sky, French Beans and Runner Beans, providing cover, tangling their way up the poles, stunning red flowers, Sweet Peas, so fragrant, rainbow colours, so gorgeous and yet to show their smiling heads, Calandula ... a surprise to come.
A carpet of woodbark at his feet, a chair to sit on and view his kingdom from, O is a happy boy.
Make plans for this project next year, you will not be disappointed.

That's is just sooo cool! Look how it's grown - it's absolutely beautiful. Will have to remember the idea for our summer. x

Of course we're friends. This is such a new phenomenon sharing so much in common with someone across the miles and yet feeling like kindred spirits.

LOVE the new photos.

All joys to you,

We have just started picking the runner beans from our runner bean house. The children also use it as a great place to hide when playing hide and seek.
