Magic beans

Last time I went back to my parents, I brought back a big bunch of the runner beans that they had been growing in the garden. I left a few of them a bit long, and they got a bit tough, so I opened them up and just look how perfect the beans were inside!

I love the patterning on these beans, as a child when we planted them I would always hide a couple for keeps in my pocket.

It would make a good fabric print, I think...

I used to pinch these from my grandad's potting shed when I was young and try to work out how to make them into jewellery. It never really worked and I generally ended up just hiding them! xxx

Haha, great minds think alike, Eleanor Rae!
