Sanctuary and support
Pleased to notice, this morning, that the Hyacinth Beans (Lablab purpureus) have found the trellis I constructed.
Last year I grew a few plants of this very decorative and vigorous climber with tropical African ancestry, as a green sun screen on the eastern porch of the little adobe casita, using seed acquired from an incarnation of the Last Chinese Emperor on a little island off the coast of Georgia.
I saved a handful of seeds from that little adobe casita crop.
I think that makes these seedlings the second gen to grow in the Chihuahuan desert.
Hoping they will flourish and add colour and interest to the kitchen window view garden, give me more seeds to expand my seed library and contribute to my winter food store.
Birds are already loving the trellis as a waiting area for access to the birdbath.
