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

Writing and daydreaming have always been two of my favorite things to do. I've been an avid journal writer since junior high school. It was a way for me to survive the complex world of being a Korean-American female straddling two cultures. Journal writing continued through graduate school, but that luxury is now replaced with multitasking to raise and homeschool two young kids. As the self-proclaimed domestic C.E.O. of our home, personal reflection occurs mostly in my subconscious dreams, during solo grocery shopping runs, or when my husband Chris takes the kids to Costco for an afternoon trip.
