One last look before the freezing temps come in at the bananas and beans in my garden this year.
By bananas I mean Musa basjoo, the hardy banana that I mulch each year and which comes back bigger and stronger each growing season.
They're really quite imposing this year...
...creating a thick jungle wall of foliage and pseudostems, visible from almost everywhere.

And by beans I mean not only the castor beans which I've talked about before...
...but the hyacinth bean vines which I have not mentioned for a while:
Such rampant growth, pretty much taking over here.
They've pulled down the castor beans that were growing under the kitchen window!
Not many blooms (at least when the photos were taken) but the foliage is so attractive I don't really mind.
I suppose my garden can be summed up with a trio: bamboo, bananas, and beans!
I'm oversimplifying of course...
But there you have it.
