Stop press: the runner beans are up!

Just as we were despairing of seeing any growth among the canes… and just as I went down to see how the garden was faring after today's very welcome rain… I found 7 beans sprouting!!! One or two of them look a bit manky, and about 5 of them seemed to be close to the same bean pole, but they were definitely runner beans and definitely up and heading for growth. So 3 cheers and cause for celebration!!
