A dragon that snaps

Mouth open
Mouth closed

Did your mom or a favorite aunt teach you how to make those pretty little snap dragon flowers talk? Well here is how to delight a child.

Snap dragon flowers grow easily and can be found many places. No one has ever complained that I stopped at their bush to show a child how they talk.

Just take your thumb and pointer finger and pinch gently at the back of the flower. That moves its mouth and all you have to do is say something clever for that dragon flower! My grand daughter Lilly just looked puzzled the first time, the 2nd time she laughed. Worth it!

Enjoy those talking Snap Dragons.
