The flower tower in front of the garage has been amazing this year. Since it gets shade late in the day, it's been able to survive the extreme heat.
The purple hyacinth bean vine started making pods a couple of weeks ago.
Today, we got some much needed rain and some not needed wind.
When I came home from work I found the flower tower on its side. Every pot was in pieces.
I had to actually break a couple of the pots even more to free them from the metal rod that runs through each drainage hole.
I stuffed all of the plants into a single pot.
Since the hyacinth bean vine had tangled itself together, I couldn't separate each planting without cutting a lot of vines.
I moved the pot to the back patio.
Hopefully, the plants will survive and the pods will mature giving me seeds for next year.
Next year, the flower tower may have a new look as I will need to purchase new pots!
