The idea is to post pictures of stuff that begins with the letter in the title, in the style of a Children's alphabet book... extra kudos for anything obscure, surreal or funny...


This week’s letter is a real challenge - 'X'   
(Personally, I'll be pleasantly surprised if we ever get off the first page, but who knows...)

X is for X-Men

X is for Xam, a very nice and gentle border collie that lives in our street.



He's a good friend of our two dogs (and the respective "bosses" get along quite well as well)

X is for Xyloid fossil or fossil wood, also known as petrified wood: wood that has been turned into stone but having kept the wood structure:



These Xyloid fossil trunks are exhibited at the Naturalis Museum in Leiden. In Dutch the name Xyloliet is also used but I could not find the corresponding English term which would be Xylolite.

Nice sunny picture, but what does Xochimilco stand for? A river, the boating, the place???
