String Beans?


Today on our walk we saw some beautiful things. It was 81 degrees. A pretty big number for November in Southern California.  Most importantly we learned where string beans come from.......




The string bean tree......BOL...
We saw this little rascal..

Pretty flowers and a rooster. Mom said it was a Bird of Paradise. I'll tell ya..that is not a bird.

Hope you guys learn something on your walk too

  2. How cool to see string beans growing! We hate eating them but have never seen them growing before. Our mum loves the bird of paradise - she has some in our conservatory but they are not real!!!

  3. You're quite right. No way that's a bird. Humans can be a bit slow at times..

  5. Hey, we have those string-bean trees in south Florida, too! Usually we see them when they are all brown and dried up.

  6. Wow those are some ginormous string beans! Are they the same as the green beans we like to eat. Ours are never that big.

    Thanks for showing us the things you saw on your walk. We don't get one today cause mom is to busy!
