Are you asking about creeper? Looks like Rangoon vine or quiscalis. Can’t spell. Needs s closer look. Or you asking about tree. It looks like a conifer. Could be totally wrong

We’ve found the NBN a vast improvement. We’re with Aussie Broadband, can’t praise them enough. We pay more so when it’s school holidays and other peak times we don’t notice a difference. @Sussanah

@KariSamuel Kari this is growing in a garden near me. Unfortunately I can't ask the people who planted it because the house got sold recently. Do you think it could be a hyacinth bean? I'll put a pic of the beans up too

@sussanah I looked up snail vine. It looks so beautiful but these flowers don't have that lovely curliness.

Thanks @cyndi. 😊 I've found lots of info on them. Just wanted extra confirmation before I knock on their door, ask for some pods and try to cook them. Lol
