Beans in a pod

There were broad beans at the greengrocer's this morning. The children fell on them with delight and demanded we bought handfuls of them. Back at home, they pulled them apart and devoured the plump raw beans like sweeties! There were a few left, which we ate (cooked!) for lunch. 

Of course, we had to do the peas in a pod rhyme- adapted- and Pip-squeak clapped his hands at the end for the very first time! What a clever bean!
Five broad beans in a bean pod pressed
One grew, two grew, and so did all the rest.
They grew and grew and did not stop,
Until one day, the pod went POP!

Thank you so much for your comment! I love your blog; it looks to be off to a great start. Of course, I also love children and singing and good things like that, so that makes it even better!
