Heirloom Blooms

So many things to plant and grow

Beans with names i have never seen

From Christmas Lima, just loves the heat

to Jacobs Cattle and Rattlesnake Pole,

Snow on the Mountain, visions of cold

to Tongues of Fire, vicious and hot.

These beautiful beans from long ago









Honesty, your fragrant purple flowers

Oval translucent seed heads

Gleam with eerie silver light.

You seed yourself freely.


Honesty you are of moral character

Positive, truthful and trustworthy

You are yourself

Living your life freely


Dare to be honest

Grow like honesty

Old fashioned charm

Thrive and be free
