Red Snapdragon ‘Crown Red’

Red Snapdragon ‘Crown Red’

Ruby Tuesday

You just don’t see Snapdragons like you used to. It is great cool season annual. The older and taller varieties were a little difficult to mange but the newer types and varieties are a lot better. I planted these red ones in the pots with some white mums. I thought it would make a nice change from Pansies.

I am reporting live from Sonoma, California. It is more beautiful than I remember. There is a diverse botanical population and a lot of different flowers. Yesterday was a sterling day and we spent most of the day wandering around town looking at the gardens and buildings. We went to one wine tasting and the Vineyard was beautiful with tons of roses blooming. Today is a little cloudy but we are going to visit a couple of public gardens.

 Since I am away from my home computer I can’t really post a link to Ruby Tuesday. Look up the teach at work of the poet.blogspot.com.

I always love visiting your blog. The snaps are just great. I love to grow them also. And I don't find them hard at all, and appreciate that they sometimes overwinter, even in Seattle. I do miss Sonoma County, that's for sure. Gardening heaven. Enjoy your trip!
