Flower of the Day: February 6, 2019

Even though it’s chilly outside, flowers are beginning to make their colorful appearances.

Till now I used the terms bloomed and blossomed interchangeably. I finally tried to clarify the difference and turned to Google. Wiktionary placed the definitions side by side, and from it you could tell there is a slight difference in meaning; it seems like synonyms to me. Maybe you have a better way to explain the difference. If you do, please share!

From Wiktionary

  • Bloom (noun):A blossom; the flower of a plant; an expanded bud.
  • Blossom (noun): A fruit fruiting; a mass of such flowers.

“A flower blossoms for its own joy.” 
― Oscar Wilde

      1. A whole group of large Camellias sounds beautiful!!! I would almost be sad to see them because they will die soon. I guess that’s why silk flowers are popular.
        But seeing nature reminds me of God’s amazing-ness.
