They are so long blooming & will have tons of seeds/beans! They have filled half of my arbor & also the trellis under the kitchen window. I notice bees & hummers also.

Pretty muddy. Those C beans look like my H bean vine really full this yr. They love my pergola.
Phlox are sure pretty. Do they get mildew?
Black eyed susans are nice too.
Your gazebo is cute. Love to have a cup back there with you.

Muddy, you must be a totally awesome gardener. Love the view out of your back door......and I like your runner beans too. Never saw a pink one before.

All of your plants look so healthy and full.

Isn't that nice! Thank You so much...that feels so heart warming. Doesn't every gardener want to hear something like that after all the time & effort & thoughts that go into creating a garden that reflects who we are? I have to toil much harder now than I used to years ago to get the same result! Should get some pink to send Vera...put you on my growing list!

So pretty, I always enjoy your pics, Muddy!

I didn't know there was a pink scarlet runner. My late DH always planted the red ones because his parents always did.

I know exactly what you mean and my gardening days are winding down. Won't spend the time and effort any more as there are more enjoyable things for me now. No longer have unlimited energy so need to prioritize. Enjoy your gardening days while you can. I have lots of good memories and will be satisfied with a few containers in the future.
