Just a quick post to share the snapdragons which have been flowering beautifully in my back garden for several weeks now, livening up a border which has done most of its blooming already.
Erm, don't look at the grass too closely - my husband cut it the same day that this was taken.
I bought a pack of 6 small plants back in May for £2.50 and look how they grew!
Lovely colourful spires of flowers which have lots of personality.
If you squeeze either side of the flower, its 'mouth' opens. I loved doing it as a child and still can't resist now.
They come in lots of different colours, all bright, and I love them for that.
When I planted them I had no idea of which they'd be - I like this pink and red combo.
A lovely splash of colour just where it's needed, and with a bit of a cottage feel.
They're almost over now, but I'll definitely have them again next year.
