I have been watching this plant with interest. The flowers are quite beautiful and are lasting for several weeks.
Here is a more recent picture. The original central "hen" is gone. Little " chicks" are forming between the other hens. The plant next door has the "chicks" but no flower stalk. I find it amazing!
We have been having rain every day. I 'm waiting for a dry enough day to harvest the green beans. I hope it comes soon!
