X is for Xanthic

X is a tricky letter.

I don’t have any photos of X-rays, xylophones, X-Factor …

Can you think of any word that starts with the letter X?

Thank goodness for google!

So I’ve come up with – A xanthic field of flowers.

I never knew that there was such a word as “xanthic”, until I googled words that began with x.

Xanthic means yellowish.

A yellowish field of flowers.

X is for xanthic.


What’s your word for X?

    I am adding this one to my daily vocab. Love the colour yellow, so will find lots of opportunities to use it.Just need to check pronunciation. #AlphabetPhoto

    • I know! I learned loads of new words that begin with X today (as I went through each blog-posts linked with alphabet photo). Had so much fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

    LOL, yeah… I’ll stick with x-ray. I don’t have any pictures, but Mr. T had some taken last Saturday to see where his foot was fractured… only to discover, it really wasn’t. ๐Ÿ™‚
