Can you please identify a bean growing wild in my front garden? It has clusters of round leaves with yellow flowers growing from under the stems. There are skinny bean pods about 3 inches long growing from the wilted flowers.

You're describing something from the Leguminosae (Pea) family, but it's difficult to positively identify it without actually seeing it. If you didn't plant it, I'd be inclined to believe it was a weed and suggest you pull it out. Since plants are identified by their flowers and this one is flowering, why not take a sample to your local Extension office to see if they can identify it for you? Contact U of Georgia Cooperative Extension, PO Box 1001, Perry 31069. Phone (912) 987-2028. I'm sure they can help you.
