Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Summer has definitely arrived for us and it wall to sun and blue sky today-hope it is sunny where you are.

At The Craft Barn this time the letter is Y but with a bit of a twist as you also have to use yellow.


I chose the plant Yucca for my word. It always amazes me that they seem to grow here in the North of England these days as about 50 years ago the only place we used to see them was Devon and Cornwall when we went on holiday. They always looked so 'posh'-well they still do to me. I hadn't realised that the root has all sorts of healing uses so I added the link to the page so I won't forget.

Nice to have you drop by-thank you

Love Chrissie x

Great word choice and spread. Y is a challenge that you rose to. I did not know about the Yucca's healing properties - really interesting. Julie Ann x.

I do so like the yellow, Chrissie. I had no idea Yucca plants grew in England. I like learning new things all the time. Thank you.

May you have a healthy and happy week,

Marianne xo
