Dragon flower

Snapdragons make cute flowers, but when the seed pods dry, they look weird like tiny skulls.
Also known as the dragon flower, the odd-looking seed heads have been the source of legends and myths. Some people believe a few of the mystical little pods scattered around the house would protect the residents from curses, sorcery and other forms of evil. They were even thought to contain anti-aging and supernatural powers!  🙂

  1. Well I never knew that. Ive always loved these little flowers and my dads party trick was to squeeze them each side and make them talk! I’ve never tried keeping them til they dry but I will now.
