Could you by any chance have planted butterbeans instead of green beans?

I've watched 2 episodes (missed the 3rd) but found myself saying "get on with it" several times! Thought that the purple rubber chips seating area for the mum with 5 kids a bit off, that stuff will be all over the garden and inside the house in no time.

Identification help please!

shoecake, don't give up on the roses. I took over a very old leggy rose when we moved into our present house and in Spring cut it right down to about 2 inches (thought either it survives or it doesn't, nothing to loose). To my surprise, up came several new stems and now, 15 years on, it flowers beautifully every year. I do prune it every Spring now though, but only to about 6 inches.

I've had a "traditional" busy lizzie for the last 2 years now, no problem with any virus so far. I agree with Verdun, not keen on the New Guinea types, they look too artificial for me.

Love the roos, Pat E, but I'm amazed at how brown all the grass is! Does it ever green up?
