Yakkity, Yak, Yak, Yak

ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. Our Host, Mrs. Nesbitt hails from Great Britain. We started with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. We are now in our second year, round 4! This week's letter is,"Y".

YUCCA

Hey, I would be remiss and negligent if I DIDN'T post an image of a yucca seeing as I live in the land of yucca, New Mexico! Trouble is, narrowing it down to just one image when I have a kazillion!

YARN

These lovelies were hanging outside a fiber art/yarn store up in Taos. I wish I knew the name of the store to post here, but, alas! I don't. Northern New Mexico is known for it's weavers, such as the Chimayo Weavers. Although, I think this store is that of La Lana Wools.

Yarrow

These grow in my garden. Yellow yarrow and white yarrow. I would advise against planting white yarrow in the garden as it is invasive like mint is; best kept in a container! They make for nice cut flowers and serve well as a "filler" an a flower arrangement.

YAK

Or, yakitty, yak, yak yak!! Nope, I don't have a yak out in my back yard. This one is from a Google search of images and it appears here at this blog.

Very clever and original post for the letter Y. Love the "fringe" on the Yucca plant.

You could of answered a question about one of my own phots.. a yarrow. Love the brightly coloured yarn, and the rambling yarn of a post.

Grace and Bradley said...

Yes, your Yucca and Yarn are so New Mexico. Thanks for sharing.

The yarns are amazing.
Y has been very fun. Looking forward to zzzzzz's.

Love all the colours in your photos. Yarrow, minds of their own, but pretty.

I have a Yucca in a pot! I think I posted it last round though. It must be amazing to see them full size in their natural habitat.

I rather like Yarrow, it grows wild here. I never thought of using it as a cut flower, though maybe the garden variety is different?

Paula Scott said...

Jay, I think the white yarrow is the same as you see in the wild (it grows like a lawn if left to it's own devices). So, you could use it as a cut flower.

Great Y's. No one told me how invasive yarrow was - it's fighting with my roaming lavender. Argh. Love the yucca and yarn and the other beauties.

Very interesting! Exciting the word-gorged soul in me.

It sounds like week after next would be the perfect time for someone to start. I really like the last photo of the bird feeder shadow.
