Handsome blossoms

By Debra Dobbins

Yesterday I noticed my neighbor’s crab apple tree was blossoming handsomely. I’m also happily spotting forsythia bushes bursting forth their vibrant shades of yellow.

The word “blossom” can be used as a noun or a verb. As a noun, it can mean a “flower or bloom” or a “state or time of flowering,” according to Webster’s. As a verb, it can mean to bloom or “to begin to thrive or flourish; develop,” again according to Webster’s.
