I am a snapdragon

"Mischief is your middle name, but your first is friend. You are quite the prankster that loves to make other people laugh" pronounces the test I found at This Garden is Illegal (what a funnny name) blog.

Yesterday I went to Home Depot in Mayaguez ( the nearest relatively big town) for a prozaic purpose of purchasing a garbage bin, as instructed by my landlord, since here a garbage collection company does not provide you with garbage bins, but I found fun patio furniture, which I could not purchase yet, since it would not fit into my Mazda.

And, Eureka! I also found seeds, even organic seeds, which I purchased: a few kinds of basil, chives and garlic chives, dill... and my favorite nightbloomer: moonflower - ipomoea alba or noctiflora.

because I knew I wanted to have a - mostly white and very fragrant - moongarden around my patio

I admit I haven't purchased snapdragon yet, as I haven't even attempted to do a garden design (now I am "slave driving" myself at work, so I haven't have time), but, just like I made an exception for moonflower, I should have made an exception for snapdragon, which, after all, is ME, and - white, or pink and white - would fit perfectly into my moon garden !

Hope you like snapdragon - both as flora and fauna (me) ;-)
