Last year’s runner beans proving that, given the right conditions, the dormant roots will survive to sprout again the next year. The right conditions in this case being a mild winter and a gardener who didn’t get round to clearing the old plants away in the autumn.
Well, they look like trees to me.
From my print archive. The original print is colour, but I think it looks better in black and white. I love digital photo-editing!
It’s been a shorter season than usual this year, presumably due to the unusual weather patterns, but I ate raspberries every day for six weeks or so and have a few pounds stashed in the freezer.
