ABC Wednesday Challenge -- L

It's ABC Wednesday again, and we are all the way up to:

And of course, I'm running LATE!

There were several things I thought about that started with L.

Our Lemon Verbena is really showing signs of all the trimming I have had to do this year to get the leaves I needed for Salt Scrubs and Jelly.

The Lemon Balm is looking nice and healthy, I may have to start using it instead of Lemon Verbena. It doesn't have the same properties, but is has a similar taste and smell, so I could use it in Jelly.

I don't know though. Lemon Balm and Rosemary just doesn't sound as exotic as Lemon Verbena and Rosemary, does it?

Either way the market season is almost over, so it is probably not a real issue.

I started out to take some pictures of leaves today, to tie in with my leaf tie from yesterday.
But the LEAVES here haven't really started to turn yet. They are LATE this year. Give me another month and I can have some LOVELY LEAF pictures.

LUCKILY, the ultimate L picture was one I just happened upon at the grocery store.

Imagine having a shiny red LEXUS and driving around enjoying your midlife crisis. Then imagine what a LOSER you would feel like when you got to the grocery store and discovered that someone there had a LEXUS just like yours!

I LAUGHED when I saw the two LEXUS'S. (What is the plural of LEXUS? LEXI?)

And LAUGHTER, is the most important L word in LIFE!

Please take some time to check out what others were INSPIRED to blog about this week, at
