OK, when I say flax, you say phlox


Have you noticed that all the difficult letters are stuck on the end of the alphabet? Is it a coincidence? Because of that mystery, I am taking the liberty of posting photos for ABC Wednesday's letter du jour, X with words that only have an x in them. Blue flax above, tiny & dear and lavender creeping phlox below along with the odd and engaging Prairie Smoke. Of course, these were both captured in my neighbors' yards, with the admonition 'Don't step on anything.'

Very good way to use a difficult letter.

The flowers are lovely and I also like your blog wallpaper.

If it's difficult to put X first, why not at the end!! Nice photos - I love blue flax.

Beautiful....you have the advantage here in my opinion....the NEIGHBORS have all the hard work, keeping the yard in tip top shape, while YOU enjoy the beauty without the work involved.

SUN TEA

Have a great Wednesday!!!
