Y is for Yucca Tree in full bloom -- being serenaded here by a house finch. We have quite a number of Yucca trees in our back yard. Although the bloom is large and a creamy white, it has no perfume except for what attracts flies.
The white rose of YORKSHIRE
This is the emblem of the house of York which once vied with Lancashire whose emblem was the red rose, to gain the throne of England in the War of the Roses. I have a soft spot for Yorkshire,which was my home county for a good many years.
When our oldest son was still a toddler, he discovered that when he yawned he could make other people yawn. It was a family joke for a few days. A week or so later we had to make a bus trip in to the next town. We climbed aboard and sat at the front of the bus. He stood on the seat beside me looking back at the rest of the people on the bus enjoying the fun of a rare bus ride. Every now and then I heard him chuckling, so I turned to him to see what was so funny. He was amusing everyone on the bus by yawning at them -- and they were yawning back!
