Some of the snapdragons I planted in the fall seem to have finally recovered from the cold December frost and are blooming again. I never noticed how fuzzy snapdragons can be. Here are a few pictures of pink snapdragons, either in full bloom or in bud form, featuring a good amount of fuzz on each picture. It almost looks like a fuzzy blanket to keep the flowers warm.

    So pretty. I’m wondering if the lack of rain out there has had an impact on your garden?

      Depending on how sunny and warm/hot it gets, I have to water every day to only a couple of days a week. I have artificial grass so I only have to water the plants and produce I try to grow. Stuff in the greenhouse doesn’t need as much watering because a lot of the moisture stays inside, so that’s a good thing. I just have to make sure I don’t let things bake in the summer heat in there.

    I love the fuzz! It adds to the delicate look of the flower.

    Snapdragons are special, and they are easy to grow. Beautiful capture!
