Today's Flowers #15

Photobucket

A snapdragon (Antirrhinum), called Loewenmaeulchen, Lion's Mouth in German. I used to play with them all the time as a child, making them "talk" and even feeding them (the flower opens like a mouth when you squeeze the sides in the right spot).

It has the same name in Norwegian ("Løvemunn"), though we have never had it. Nice catch!

Very pretty garden and those Snapdragons are beautiful. I remember popping them as an adult, as well as a child.

Very nice. I love snaps also, although my mom said it was a dragon, not a lion. And thanks for visiting my skywatch photo. Much appreciated! Sara

I love snapdragons. And I did the same thing when I was little.
