Xyst

We are approaching the end of the alphabet for this round of ABC WEDNESDAY.  Letter X is always a little hard but I believe I found a good one.

Xyst is a long portico usually found in Greece for athletics OR a long covered garden walk.

Last year on a tour of the Kansas City Museum I photographed the lovely gardens.  This XYST is covered with vines, however the Wisteria was not in bloom at the time.










I really enjoy this one because it also reminds me of Greece with the columns.

Linking with ABC WEDNESDAY

Brilliant post Ann,

That one is brilliant, Ann! I saw the "xyst" word among the ones at the unusual word site that I like to frequent and thought then that it would make an interesting post. All the better when you have your own photo (and memories) to go with the word. And as you say the columns are significant.

So many new words you learn through a blog hop!! Very nice, I had no idea about a Xyst not about the one that I chose to write on.
