Leo's mouth

When I was a kid I used to play with those flowers, which I knew as "Lion's Mouth", if you press it on the "cheeks", it looks like a lion mouth opening and apparently this is an international name... hmmm, a flower about Fedora 11?

  1. I used to play a lot with these too.

    There are several other that were used as a game: „cock or chicken”, those green resembling the wheat ear; you would use them as rackets to tangle them in somebody else's hair and a white flower like the dandelion but with thicker petals; you would use its stalk to launch the flower as far away as possible.
