Hello! My name is Ribbit. My favorite things to do are pooping, swimming, eating, pooping (oh wait, I already said that), stretching, playing, relaxing, exploring, and smiling to those who admire my cute face.
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!
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
