ABC Wednesday *C is for Chicory*

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 7


This week in the ABC Wednesday Meme, we are on the letter "C". So, I chose a photo of the wildflower Chicory. Chicory grows abundantly in my rural area of Missouri. The people from these parts don't really give Chicory a second glance. I, however, think it's very beautiful. The flowers can be blue, white, or even have a purple tint to them. Sometimes, there are different color flowers on the same plant.

Some of the varieties of Chicory are cultivated for salad leaves, and sometimes, the root of the Chicory is baked, ground, and used as a coffee substitute or additive.

So I present to you...

"C" is for Chicory

What a beautiful blue, - we have chicory here in the Similkameen, growing wild along the roads. Such a pretty picture when it is in bloom.

An exquisite flower - impressive photo. I've never tried chicory coffee but I'd like to. (maybe) :)

A wonderfully pretty little flower - and such a lovely blue! A case of familiarity breeding contempt, perhaps?
