Beanly blossoms

It's been so hot all summer long that only now are some plants beginning to bloom. This morning there are flowers on a hyacinth bean for the very first time. These are grown from seeds produced last year by the rogue specimen that did not produce shiny purple pods, just green ones. The seeds and the flowers look the same as those produced by the purple-podded plants, but the pods are not shiny and are pretty much the same color as the leaves.
