Have you snapped a snapdragon?

Thursday, June 01, 2006
My snapdragons are in bloom right now. I have three plants in my garden, all of which I nurtured from seed, so they're especially gratifying to see when they're covered in blooms.

As a kid, whenever I saw snapdragons, I had fun pinching them at the throat of the flower and making them snap. As an adult, I still like doing this!


They're fun little flowers, aren't they?

Beautiful color snapdragon! It almost looks as if it snaps itself. As a kid, I would get in trouble for snapping hosta flowers in a neighbor's garden. It can be habitual, snapping flowers. Now I want to go out & snap a snapdragon!

I didn't know hosta flowers have a snapping feature, too. Now I'm curious and want to check out the hostas around the community garden.

Oh yes, funny flowers! I like them. In my garden they are wild.
