Snapdragons- Local Flora – Stay at home stroll – 8

This is a series about the neighborhood flowers and flowering trees that I saw and enjoyed on my walk in the neighborhood during the stay at home months.  Many of the flowers I don’t know much about and depend on Google lens to get a name.  If there are mistakes, apologize for my ignorance.

Definitely does not look anything like a dragon to me.  Who in their right mind will call these beautiful flowers dragons?  The only snapdragons that I knew of, before looking up the name of these ornamental flowers brightening the front yards of many neighbors, were the processors from Qualcomm that many cell phones use as their cpu.  Seasonal by nature, these beauties are a sight to behold.  We have a few in our garden but they have not started blooming yet. Coming in varieties of color, they really lights up a garden.


Dragons you are not

Such a beautiful sight

Brighten up a garden

A heart’s delight

A Rose is a rose

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. Beautiful. Snapdragons were the first flower I could identify. My grandma had them in her flower beds and would “make them talk” for us by opening and closing their “mouths.” The next was the lilac bush by the bathroom window, with its sweet perfume. Then fat peonies, pom pom shaped and irresistible to ants. 🙂

    1. I remember that from my childhood too but didn’t remember the name. My vocabulary of flowers is really limited. I just like them but not good at gardening. Actually being forced to water the plants from a very early age(my brothers were much older than me) may have completely turned me against gardening. Now as I walk my neighborhood and I see the beautifully tended gardens bursting with colors, I rue it.

      1. I was a houseplant too, but I soaked up a lot of info as a young child, when grandma gave me her undivided attention and taught me things. When I got older, I was a “house plant.” I didn’t like anything dirty, itchy, or buggy, or getting sunburned. 🙂

      1. I do not have a green thumb though we have solace for a garden. I just like flower but on the plants and trees, not in flower vases.
