I ordered a flat of snapdragons again this year for a junior rowing fundraiser. Some of last year’s plants are still alive because of the mild winter (as shown in a late November post), but they’re not blooming yet, so it will be good to get some new ones in next to them!

The plants were delivered to the boathouse this afternoon, and my husband picked them up. He hasn’t gotten home yet, and the flowers are still in his car, so I’m posting an image that I cropped from the order sheet instead of the actual flowers.

Tomorrow afternoon I’ll get them planted while my husband mows the lawn. Wishing all my readers in the Northern Hemisphere a week of happy spring planting too!

  1. I love this little ones, a park close by has many of them, I was admiring their beauty few day ago. Happy gardening to you!

  2. Always loved snapdragons! Unfortunately I DO NOT have a green thumb when it comes to flowers and plants! My Mom has a very green thumb tho and we always had flowers everywhere 🙂 Happy planting to you!

    • They are very hardy and don’t need much care — I could have just left them alone and waited a few weeks for last year’s survivors and their seedlings to start blooming and let the bare spots fill in naturally, but I didn’t have that much patience! 🙂

  3. I do not see snapdragons very often — but I always like the sound of their name in descriptions in books and “spring flower talk”! I planted some daylilies, purple cone flowers and caladiums for the summer. I am trusting with my intention — that they will grow!! 🙂 Thank you for sharing with Nurturing Thursday!

  4. That sounds like a pretty mix Becca, wishing them good growing too! 🙂

  5. Spring reminds of the blossoming of new flowers coming to life. Love snapdragons …
    Namaste ?
