Springtime in my Garden - 15

Fourteen young runner beans plants have been selected for growing on. They have now been placed around two seven foot wigwams and are starting their journey upwards in an anti-clockwise direction.

Runner beans are one of my favourite vegetables. They are not grown all that much in the Scottish Highlands - they rather give away the fact that I am from England!

And did those feet in ancient time.
Walk upon Englands mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On Englands pleasant pastures seen!
And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?

Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
Bring me my Arrows of desire:
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!
I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In Englands green & pleasant Land.

I like the tune! I hope my neighbours don't take offense and pull the wigwams down.
