abc wednesday - X is for "Xeriscaping"

. . . which is a method of landscaping that uses 
drought-resistant plants in order to
conserve water. That doesn't mean just
cactus, though—this lavender that's making 
my bedroom so fragrant right
now came from a Xeriscape garden.

[See how others interpreted X here.]


  1. Perfect word for the letter X. I really like the way your lavendar is displayed. Pretty.

  2. I love lavender and have some growing on my porch. Xeriscaping is something we don't need here right now, with all this rain. But it's hot and sunny now; who knows?

    I like how you have displayed your lavender.

  3. I even didn't know that name and I cannot find in my mind a French équivalent !
    Great information and great picture !
    I like lavendar vey much, so full of memories and images !!

  4. Wow, I've never seen lavender arranged like that ~ unusual and lovely! And their fragrance would be delicious!

  5. actually quite pretty; there's another example in the meme that is more barren.

  6. A beautiful display - I might try that, or something similar. Love lavendar.

  7. And to think, I always thought Xeriscaping meant "Rocks and weeds".

    You made it look good!

    On behalf of the ABC Wednesday Team, Thanks for participating this week. Hope you can join us again next week.


  8. Lavenders are really good, well besides on having heavenly fragrance, it will add color and value to your garden especially to those who use xeriscaping concept.
