Our patio and deck looked pretty sad when we first moved in...
But now it's a comfy place to sit, eat and be inspired. There is a stream that runs behind the wall in the left of the photo below, and we are able to pull water out to water our plants and also lower a basket down to chill our beers (it's much faster than the fridge). And there's lots of birds making nests all over the place that we get to watch and listen to.
These are some buds on our runner bean plants that are about to open up. Soon we'll have beans coming out of our ears.
These little white flowers will become peas--in fact, since this photo was taken a few days ago we have even been able to eat some! Everything is happening so fast now.
This is one of our dwarf French bean plants, not sure what to expect from these guys, but they're flowering now which is a great sign!
Now if they would just turn red.
