1 We were able to harvest three kinds of beans today – Runner, French and Purple Climbing French Beans Cosse Violette, very beautiful but sadly they lose their rich purple colour when steamed. I just love being able to pick food from the garden and being able to eat it barely ten minutes later!
2 Cornish mist was mizzling when we went out to pick the beans and the light somehow intensified the complementary colours of the blue Agapanthus and the orange Crocosmia.
3 L and Grand-baby B are visiting for a couple of days and joined me in the bean harvest. Grand-baby B found the mist on her face very amusing and the little droplets looked like tiny jewels in her hair.
