ABC Wednesday - Y.


We're very nearly at the end of the alphabet again. Just one more week to go, and Denise has asked if we want to carry on. My answer is a huge
YES!
This week the letter is
Y.

This is my son on his motorbike, wearing a high-visibility YELLOW waistcoat/vest. He's waiting at the end of our road, at the sign that once - before part of the Y fell off - said YIELD.

Here he has parked so that he can take photos.
YES,
the motorbike is a
YAMAHA.

This is part of the graveyard wall beside the Old Chapel. The trees are Irish YEW (Taxus baccata 'Fastigiata'). I've been told that, in this case, the yellow tree is male and the dark green is female.
More Y posts can be found through the ABC Wednesday page.
Maybe you'll feel like joining in with Round 5.

Very nice Y's!
The male and female yews are new to me.
Always learning on ABC Wednesday.

Nice collection of Y's. It is nice that your son is mature enough to wear the visible/eyecatching yellow vest.

I had never heard of an Irish yew and the mae female split in colour is fascinating. Yamahas for me of course a big yes.

Aileni said...

Yes - good coverage.

I think "yew" did a good job!

Oooh, great 'Y's!

We had a Yamaha once! If I hadn't been doing things from my house and garden, I suppose I could have used an old picture of that! LOL! But I doubt I'd have beaten three 'Y's in that one picture!
