Xanthic

Did You Know?
That Yellow
is also called Xanthic
That hue, fantastic!



Dictionary meaning of Xanthic- Of a Yellow tint esp. as a description of flowers 
Until yesterday this word wasn't a part of my vocab'. Thanks to the Z-A in 26 Days Challenge
 at 'I Rhyme Without Reason' I revisited the dictionary and realised there ARE some words from 'X' that I never knew ever Xisted. So Xcited I was on discovering Xanthic that I knew Xactly where I had to go to find Xactly that flower which could Xemplify the meaning of XANTHIC...

I found this little yellow thing and its buddies in full blossom at Osho Park, Koregaon Park, Pune..:D

The flower is not clear. but the leafs are clear. If the flower is clear and the leafs are unclear, the photo will be superb.

- Just an opinion.
