Snapdragon



I never plant this long-lasting and charming flower. Its flowers last until snow start to fall. Where ever its seed fall down it sprouts and start to grow in spring, like a weed. Snapdragon reminds me to my childhood. When I was a little girl I use to take its blossom and squeeze its sides after which it opened up like a mouth. I always had fun doing that.
Have a relaxing weekend!

Very nice shots. I like the colours. In french these flowers are called "gueules -de-loup" which means "wolf's mouths".
Have a nice week end

I love snapdragons. I always enjoyed them when I was little. I remember my Mom showing me why they were called Snapdragons.
