Unusual, for us, lavender iris showing the "beard." We had just enough misty rain this morning to put rain drops on everything.

Another beautiful color combination, also showing the beard. I am going to have to make note to much the living daylights out of that side of the bed. I don't want to lose any of these bulbs this winter.

And how do bean vines know where to go? Yesterday those runners were waving around pointing every which way. Today they're zeroed in like a pointer on a pheasant. But, how do they know where to go. I mean it's like Audrey looking for lunch.

Note the cobbled together trellis arrangement. What works for the rectangular trellis on the other side of the bed doesn't exactly work here. At least not without a little help. LOL

They're very clever bean vines, just like the morning glories I grew one year.  Only they got out of control, climbing 20-30 ft. in length.  Scary!

I've always been a little spooked by how clever vining plants are...especially weed vines.
