Runner bean leaves drying/curling

Can anyone tell me what’s happening to my runner bean leaves? I didn’t water it for a couple of days and it was looking very droopy so I gave it some water and it perked up again but now the leaves are drying/curling. It’s producing lots of flowers still. Is it due to me forgetting to water for a few days or something else?

    Looks like drought and possibly a bit of wind damage. Wind can be very drying of soft leaves that have a large surface area.

    Mine look very much the same but definitely not from drought. I think it's a combination of hot & windy weather. The flowers are coming now so I think all will be well. 
  • Thank you! It has been very windy here the past week or so!
