ABC Wednesday - X is for Xeric

X is for Xeric............

dry parched mud texture

According to the dictionary, xeric means a dry condition with very little moisture.

These X words are getting pretty difficult to find after 6 rounds of ABC Wednesday.

But I found success with the perfect photo for this word.

Parched mud so dry that it was curling right up off the ground.

Doesn't get any more xeric than this!

This is the sixth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
