Sunday wonders - S

S is for Snapdragon.

I love these old-fashioned flowers. Each winter, they are the second constant on my 'yes, please' list when Maria orders her seeds.

I love the tall clean shapes of the plants and the bright, yet somehow restrained, colors of the flowers.

Best of all, I love how the flowers 'snaps' open when you squeeze it. This game has been a joy since I was a little girl. I have enjoyed sharing it with many kids over the years.

They're lovely looking plants.I've never "snapped" one open, but it sure does sound like fun!

I used to love to snap the blossoms on hostas when I was little. Now I need to find some of these to snap.
