The Latin name for the commonly known Snapdragon is Antirrhinum Majus.
The good news is that Snapdragons are non-toxic to humans and pets.
The legend behind the name Snapdragon is actually literal in nature. The individual blooms of the Snapdragon flower have the appearance of the head of a dragon. If you gently squeeze an individual bloom, the bloom will open in a way that resembles a dragon opening it's mouth and when you let it go, the bloom will snap shut.
Years ago people would send messages with flowers. The symbolism associated with Snapdragons is vast depending on the color. The Yellow Snapdragon represents Happiness and Good Luck.
Some people still take interest in the symbolism of flowers and there was a wealth of information on the internet, in addition to a number of books dedicated to the meanings, symbolism and secret messages sent with flowers.
The Snapdragon is a beautiful, non-toxic addition to any garden, for your Family and Pampered Pets to enjoy. Snapdragons are safe to have around dogs, cats and horses.

Fresh or Frozen cooked Green Beans are one of the most wonderful treats.
There are also many cooking options too, steamed, boiled, baked, grilled (if your cooking out) and the microwave (for the quick and easy cook).
When adding anything new to your Pampered Pets diet always ask your veterinarian's advise.

Realtors have been busier than they have in many years. Houses are selling within days.
My thoughts went to "The Andy Griffith Show."
The Andy Griffith Show based in North Carolina has wonderful lessons to learn in each episode. Andy Griffith, in addition to staring in the Andy Griffith Show, was a resident of historic Roanoke Island, part of the Outer Banks.
On January 4th, 1965 the 16th episode of season 5 of "The Andy Griffith Show" aired on tv. The episode title was "Barney Fife, Realtor." During this episode, the decisions and emotions that people go through in selling and buying homes are on full display. The episode also highlights issues of due diligence and how each home has its own issues and is as individual as you.
If you have not seen the "Barney Fife, Realtor" episode, it's never too late and well worth your time. You can watch this episode through Google Play Movies and TV subscription, Amazon Prime Video subscription, Apple TV, YouTube, and many more.
This episode will be on TV Land at 5:10pm eastern time on August 3rd, 2021. That is only a couple of days away, so mark your calendars.
A Special Thank You! is going out to all of the Wonderful Licensed Realtors in the USA. Thank you for your knowledgeable advice and understanding in these difficult times. An Extra Special Thank You to the Pet-Friendly Realtors, that know exactly what Families with Pampered Pets are looking for.
