My Crimson Flowering Broad Beans
Words can't capture, photos to an extent, reality (as with everything) in their full glory.
A bonus to the brightness they bring to the winter/spring garden is that they make beans. Even if they didn't, they're still worthy of a plot. Short pods with three or four sweet, tightly hugged beans. Snug, warm from spring sun. More.
Locals can visit to experience the reality. I have seeds available.
Culminating in my idea of spring bling (with hats left on given they're young and tender):
Maybe with a little broth, short pasta and parsley or tossed through a penne pasta with spring cousins, mint, zucchini, fennel, lemon zest and year-rounder, Parmesan, (capitalised as it's earned it).
Polish off and sing. It's spring.
