ABC Wednesday

The letter is the Spectacular S

Shall I choose SUNFLOWERS or SNAPDRAGONS to represent this Snappy, Sunny letter?

Either conjures up beautiful images...
 
Snapdragons were a favourite in my grandmother's garden and it delighted small children to snap the dragon's mouth open wide.








2008 was a Special year for Sunflowers in our garden.



 



And a feature on the menu at the Bird's Bar and Grill

Love the photos. I used to play with the snapdragons as a child, too. And sunflowers are one of my daughter's favourite summer flowers. Have a super week!

These are so beautiful Hildred. I remember doing that to Snapdragons too when I was younger.
Brilliant Sunflowers.

Love both of these "S" flowers! I think you have reminded most of us how we all played with Snapdragons as children. Thanks for the Sunny memories and Stunning photos!

Snapdragons are not so common in the Dutch garden. I don't know why not, for it's such a lovely decorative plant. Sunflowers are also a problem. I haven't seen them around.I never managed to breed them , though I had lots of seeds and great instructions.Well , anyway I wish you a wonderful day.

I love snapdragons too Hildred - they are a sort of old fashioned flower but they have never lost their appeal.

Snapdragons remind me of my childhood! and I simply love sunflowers, beautiful choices for S.

I have a soft spot for snapdragons, there was a walled garden near where I lived as a child that had rows of them, very snappable. Sunflowers are always so spectacular, lovely photos.

Hi Hildred,
I think your flowers are beautiful, and I used to play with snapdragons, too. But I think your silver-lined clouds are exceptional!
