ABC Wednesday: Y is for Yarrow

I thought I'd start with yellow yarrow for two Y words.

Next some white yarrow. I had to go to old photos since my yarrow is currently overrun with weeds.

Last is red yarrow although it looks pink in this shot.

Great post. I've seen these blooms so frequently in arrangements and never knew what they were called. Great shots, too.

Great images for "y"--once had a student named yarrow; I often wondered if she knew how lovely a yarrow image is? Kate, ABC Team

So pretty! I think I've seen some of these as I walk my dogs. I'll have to take a closer look tomorrow when I'm out.

The yellow yarrow is so bright and cheerful, yellow has a way to brighten up any garden.

Great flower..I don't think I ever knew its name...nice for the letter, especially the yellow one of course.

Wonderful post. Yarrow was another word I considered this week, but my enthusiasm to research it melted away with my brain in this humid week. So glad you did it.

I had no idea those lovely flowers were called Yarrow. We have a small town here with that name, too. Oh, those pinks are so lovely!
