As you may remember, Aunt Janet sent us some magic beans back in April. Mom and I planted them so the rest of the Ao4 and I could have an escape route, should we need a quick get-away from the Giant! We've posted a few p-updates, so you could follow our magic beanstalks as they grow. We've had a few challenges, with the heat, drought, BUNNIES and bugs ... but they're really coming along. Everysibe has been helping keep an eye on them, which is really nice.
I went out to do my own inspection the other day and thought I'd show you how exciting and cool the magic bean vines are getting! Here I am by the one at the base of the stairs to the lower deck.
Hey! I see little flowers! They're starting to bloom!
I checked the leaves over real well to see if there were any bugs on them, then couldn't resist tasting some of those pretty buds!
I have no idea why, but Mom started that funny "nononoZimmieno!" thing. Whose magic beanstalks does she think they are!?!? I mean ... really! Here's a shot of it from this morning, after we watered:
And here is another one of the pots:
Aren't they looking GREAT?!?! Here are a couple close-ups of the blooms:
We saw a hummingbird on them yesterday, but couldn't get a picture. It was really cool - those are some FAST birdies!
Before we know it, they'll be full of big purple BEANS! I wonder if Mom will cook some for us this year? I love beans!
That's all the magic beans....talk for today! Have a good one, everypup!
