What kind of beans Jackie?
Green beans? So fun to grow.
Bush Green Beans The grow on small short bushes. You do not have to string the plants on a trellis or pole.
My Mother used to grow those - delicious!
So do I. they are very productive. I freeze lot for the fall and winter months.
Our beans are up too!!! And a few peas. Basil barely, cukes and zucchini recognizable.
Here's a quiz for y'all - what do you think this is?
I don't recall ever seeing anything like it
It could be some type of water lily. I would have to ask around.
Are you going to give us any clues other than the picture and it grows in your backyard?
it is a yellow magnolia. maybe the variety canary.
No, sorry karenjones but it's from the Tulip Popar tree. Liriodedron tulipfera
So pretty and eye-opening. Grateful that this exists.
Beautiful shot with the contrasting colors. I’ve never heard of this tree before.
That last picture I didn't take (in case you thought I did.)
Yeah, I could tell kinda sorta. Both pictures were pretty to me. Maybe you can give us some shots while they are still on the tree.
Too high up for me to get one. I'd have to be way up on a ladder. The poplar by the front of our house is 60' to 90' ? high. And close ups via zoom-in with my 5 pixel camera just ain't gonna cut it. But I can take a picture of the tree itself which is magnificent!
P.S. - I answered before I read all of the replies. I have 4 of these in my yard & the kids Kim keeps love taking them apart for some reason.
Too smart to live!
Nope. Not a water lily. (I know what it is. It's in my back yard.)
It grows in my front yard too. HA!
Desperate, huh? lol
It's a blossom, not a flower per se.
okay, I just dawned on me it is not a flower. still working on it.
yay, now I need to know how it smells.
Is that the correct answer? I am pretty sure it is.
Yup, tis! Good going KT! But don't smell. That's okay. It's so beautiful it doesn't need to!
I read that the smell is similar to a cucumber. Go figure. Very Pretty. Wish I had room for a tree like that. May find something similar smaller. Thank you for sharing.
The tulip poplar is the tree the eagle cam in DC is in.
I was so surprised to see this picture on this site. I realize it’s from 2007, but wondered if you watch the ccurrent Decorah webcam. My daughter introduced it to me when the eaglets were hatching this year and watching them is one of the things I do when I need a pleasant distraction. If anybody else is interested in seeing the nest, just type DECORAH EAGLES or RAPTOR RESOURCE PROJECT into your browser. The webcam operates 24/7. Truly fascinating!
this was a screenshot from this morning
The link I posted is a working link and those eaglets were born 1 1/2-2 months later than last year.
Oh yeah! These are the new ones at the north nest. I’ve been watching the other one. I can’t believe how fast the eaglets develop!
I was watching the other one too but they grew in to big brown monsters and then these were born so I switched.
It appears the cameras on the other nest are down until Monday.
