Rattle Snakes, Broad Beans, Purple Clouds

In the Farmers Market there is a stall selling Echinacea purpurea, advertised as an antidote for rattle snake bites.

Shelling newly picked broad beans, like emerald kidneys in a bed of white velvet.

Towering purple clouds gathering in a blue sky

Yes - I can just see the white velvet inside the pod. I will try to track down the poem on American names.
